This is the story of Charles Wilkes and the US Exploring Expedition.  Wilkes ran a tough ship and always seemed to be trying to prove his worth.  By sheer willpower,  he pushed the crews to try to map out the entire pacific ocean.  This sailing exploration collected more data and artifacts than any other exploration expedition.  Even with losing a few ships the crews pushed on making history.  The problem was when they finally got back to America, no one really seemed to care.
