About

Mention the word “pirate” today and the name “Blackbeard” almost immediately comes to mind. Although Blackbeard is perhaps the best known, he was far from the only pirate to operate in North Carolina’s waters during the “Golden Age of Piracy.” Learn more about Blackbeard and his contemporaries and the mystique that surrounds them today with the North Carolina Museum of History’s Curator of Military History, Charlie Knight.
