More information about Final Jeopardy:
Connecticut’s John Ledyard served as a British marine on Captain Cook’s third and final voyage from 1776 to 1780; the four year voyage, which began in England and headed east, was ostensibly a voyage to return Omai (a famous Tahitian who visited Europe) to his home, but was also an attempt to discover the Northwest Passage. Cook was killed after he attempted to take the Hawaiian king hostage (the locals had stolen one of Cook’s small boats). While on this voyage, though, Ledyard became the first American to set foot on both Hawaii and Alaska, which ended up becoming the 50th and 49th states, respectively, in 1959.
