In 1845, celebrated British explorer Sir John Franklin, along with his crew of 128 men, set sail from England in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. None of them was ever seen again. A search party found no evidence of any crew or wreckage. The mystery was eventually solved by John Rae, and his findings were so horrific that a public campaign was begun to discredit Rae.
