Captain James Cook killed in Hawaii
After exploring and mapping vast areas of the globe, including the Hawaiian Islands, the Australian coast, and New Zealand, Captain Cook comes into conflict with a group of native Hawaiians during his third voyage. In the heat of tensions and misunderstandings, Cook and four of his crew are killed.

Captain James Cook FRS RN was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the Royal Navy. Cook made detailed maps of Newfoundland prior to making three voyages to the Pacific Ocean, during which he achieved the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand.
