In this quick fact, I tell you the cringe-worthy reason behind one of Blackbeard’s most notorious exploits. Ouch.
Blackbeard’s Lost Treasure
This was my original opening chapter of the novel. In it, I tell readers what event kicked off the Golden Age of Piracy. This is where the vast amount of treasure (gold, silver, jewels) that drove piracy during the early 1700’s. In my book, the events described in this scene is what leads to Blackbeard receiving his Lost Treasure.
