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. Representative image.
