Blackbeard's Plunder!
Late 1717-early 1718: Reports cite Blackbeard, and his pirate crew on the Queen Anne's Revenge, plundering vessels near St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Nevis, Antigua, Puerto Rica and Hispaniola. The captures include the Great Allen, a large merchantman laden with valuable cargo including silver coins, plate and other cargo, taken near the Island of St. Vincent. Documents also indicate Thach spent the winter of 1717-1718 harassing shipping sailing to and from the port of Vera Cruz, Mexico and traversing the Bay of Honduras.

Blackbeard's Head On Display! January 3, 1719: Lt. Robert Maynard returns to Hampton River, VA with Blackbeard’s head hanging from his bowsprit. The notorious pirate had been killed during a spirited battle near Ocracoke, North Carolina. Cannons roared and townspeople cheered when they saw the horrific trophy sailing up the river toward the King Street docks. According to tradition, the head is placed on a pike in the water, at the site now known as Blackbeard’s Point at the entrance to Hampton Creek (now Hampton River, Virginia). http://nautilusproductions.com/projects/queen-annes-revenge.
