Historical Note: 

In the 1840s, a Quaker whaling merchant named Charles W. Morgan ordered a whaleship from the shipbuilders Jethro and Zachariah Hillman of New Bedford, Massachusetts.

The hull and deck of Morgan reflected the industry which she was built to serve. A typical whaleship has three functions:to serve as a mother ship to a fleet of small whaleboats, which are stored on the davits when not in use,to serve as a factory and a refinery ship with tryworks for extracting oil from the whale blubber, to serve as oil tankers.

Morgan's maiden voyage began on September 6, 1841. She sailed around Cape Horn and cruised the Pacific Ocean. Following Morgan's three year and four month voyage, she came home with 2,400 barrels of whale oil and 10,000 lbs of whalebone, known as baleen, which was worth around USD$56,000.
