Explorer Timeline
On July 24, 1618, the three still surviving mutineers were tried in court for their part in the mutiny, but none of them are convicted. The court believes them when they say they have found the shorter passage to Asia and doesn’t press any charges.
Though Henry Hudson failed to complete his ultimate goal, finding a Northeast sea route to Asia, he isn’t considered a failure. The Hudson River is named in honor of Henry Hudson. This river will later became a major trade waterway in the United States. Large ships can still travel to Albany, New York, as the Half Moon did.

A Turn of Events
Obstacles: Cold weather (bad for Dutch)

Turning Point: Changed courses to southwest

Results: Found North America and the Hudson River and landed in Penobscot Bay
