Blackbeard, Calico Jack, Madame Cheng, Henry Morgan, L’Olonnais, and The Barbarossa Brothers, hundreds of years later these names still live on. These men and women were pirates. Most historians consider the years between 1650’s and the 1730’s as the golden age of piracy. As more and more of the world came under the control of the great powers of Europe, men and women that had found independence on the high seas became hemmed in on all sides. These early buccaneer’s asked nothing from any King or great power and would not bow to anyone else’s will. Pirates were vicious and savage, but they were free. And perhaps, that is why we still remember them today. In a world of 401K yearly reports, annual performance reviews, and endless taxation from morning to night, who hasn’t taken a moment to close your eyes and imagine a life that is defined by spray of seawater and a daily battle with Navies of the world.
