The "Essex" is an infamous whaling ship that left Nantuckut, Massachusetts in 1819 and was struck and sunk by a sperm whale in the South Pacific. The survivors made it to an uninhabited island where they suffered great hardship until rescue. Herman Melville used this story when penning "Moby Dick".
