Who Was George Vancouver?
What is a biography of George Vancouver?
George Vancouver was a British Naval Officer, that is, he was an officer in the Royal British Navy. He was a very successful world traveler. He made several major global adventures with Captain Cook. Later on in his life, as a seafarer, he sailed around the world. He lived a very full life, though a short one. He was born in 1757 c.e. and died in 1798 c.e.
He should be appreciated as one of the greatest seafarer, I believe, of all times, among all the others, such as Christopher Columbus or Ferdinand Magellan, that most of us grew up knowing about.
English Officer of the British Royal Navy. Best known for his 1791-95 expedition.
