Henry Hudson was hired to find a shorter route to Asia from Europe through the Arctic Ocean. After twice being turned back by ice, Hudson embarked on a third voyage–this time on behalf of the Dutch East India Company–in 1609.

They determined it was not the path they sought once they made their voyage there. Hudson spent months drifting through the vast Hudson Bay and eventually fell victim to a mutiny by his crew.
