Here is a long out-of-print factual account of the most infamous pirate to terrorize the colonial sea-lanes of Virginia and the Carolinas, Blackbeard whose real name was Edward Teach.
In the seventeenth century, Blackbeard and numerous other pirates roamed the eastern seaboard, scavenging shipping lanes, terrorizing merchant ships, and confounding authorities. They could be visciously cruel; they could be inexplicably gallant.
A century ago a young scholar, Shirley Carter Hughson, wrote of the havoc these pirates caused along the Carolina coast. His work was originaly published in 1894 under the title "The Carolina Pirates and Colonial Commerce, 1670-1740". It is here reissued under the title "Blackbeard and the Carolina Pirates" with an added bibliography, index, illustrations, and icludes a preface by Donald Grady Shomette, well known author of "Pirates of the Chesapeake".
