Blackbeard’s Cannon Lifted from Ocean Floor

Arrgh! More pirates in the news. . .

If you watched Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides, you had the chance to see one depiction of Blackbeard and I’ll have to say that Ian McShane looks pretty realistic as Blackbeard the Pirate.

Did you know? Blackbeard’s real name was simply Edward Teach? When my family and I visited the Outerbanks of North Carolina in the spring we stumbled across a historical marker to indicate where Blackbeard was killed in Okracoke, North Carolina

Blackbeard was a frequent visitor of the Outerbanks
