BLACKBEARDS PIRATE SHIP


Blackbeard is probably the most infamous pirate in history.With his wild beard and fierce eyes, he was a formidable opponent. When going into battle he would tuck lengths of smoldering hemp into his hair, surrounding him with a veil of smoke. He looked like a warrior from another world, making him the most feared man on the seas. Blackbeard's exploits carried him from the Caribbean to the Carolinas, and in spite of his cleverness and his cruel, calculating instincts, he was killed in 1718 by the lieutenant of a Navy crew sent after him by the governor of Virginia. Teach's flagship was named the Adventure; he commanded a fleet of 6 vessels and a crew of 400 men.
