The Gentleman Pirate

Throughout 1717 Major Stede Bonnet & his crew were successful in capturing numerous prizes. After their battle with a Spanish Man of War, Bonnet & his crew partnered with the notorious Edward Thatch aka Blackbeard and continued to terrorize the seas. A total of 25 ships have been reporting in 1717, the majority off the Virginia Capes


1718 was an eventful final year in the life of Major Bonnet. He traveled the Caribbean, took several prizes (28 documented) and ultimately faced his final battle at Cape Fear.
