Ahoy Matey!


Do you know what a Jolly Roger is? It’s the name given to the flag flown on a pirate ship. We like to think that pirates are fun, maybe a little scary. In reality pirates are people who rob others. Pirates have been around as long as people have sailed the seas.

Sometimes pirates have controlled the seas. Even today there are portions of the world’s waters where pirates can be found. These pirates attack ships off the coast of Somalia and other parts of Africa. Sailors are robbed and sometimes kidnapped. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!

Aye! Blackbeard (Edward Teach) was a famous British pirate whose very name frightened people. He was fierce looking with a black beard covering his face. He was killed by British soldiers in the Carolinas in 1718.
