The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Bristol (Schooner), mutiny, 28 Aug 1851

Full Text

BRISTOL Schooner, of Montreal, which put in here to land part of a cargo from Burlington, Vt.,three or four days since, cleared on Wednesday night for Chicago. When off Racine, the crew refused to obey orders any further, unless their wages were increased, which were below what is paid on this Lake. The Captain refused to submit to their demands, and with his Mate and cook, put the vessel about and brought her back to this port, and appealed to the law for assistance. We did not hear of the settlement of the difficulty yesterday. - Milwaukee Sentinel (undated)
