Read in August, 1993

In 1797 the conditions within the British Navy were so nasty and degraded that the sailors mutinied in their harbors and dockyards. This was in the years of great civil unrest (just after the American and French Revolutions) and the sailors were quite innovative in their organization. Of course, they were inevitably put down bloodily and brutally, but their attempt at gaining rights and recognition was admirable.
