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.
