From its stunning rise as an economic force in the 18th century, to its precipitous decline in the decades following the Civil War, the whaling industry mapped millions of miles of uncharted ocean, opened new seaways and markets, employed the world's most multicultural workforce, and shrunk the globe by bringing once remote reaches of the earth into contact as never before - all the while capturing the American imagination.
