A Slave Ship Sails & A Pirate Gets The Gold!

April 1, 1717:  La Concorde, Blackbeard's future flagship, leaves France headed for the coast of Guinea after waiting out a storm. La Concorde's destination is the port of Judas in Guinea, present-day Ouidah, Benin. Also on this day, Benjamin Hornigold and a pirate named Napping capture a large armed sloop, the Bennet out of Jamaica. The Bennet's captain, Hickinbottem, surrenders without a fight and hands over a chest of gold coins. Before sailing for Jamaica, Hornigold exchanges his Adventure for the Bennet. http://nautilusproductions.com/projects/queen-annes-revenge
