Rape, slavery, pirates, Confederacy
Continuing part four:
I mean not to say there wasn't bad folks. Ned Low was a characteristically terrible piece of work along with Bartholomew Roberts, Edward Cobham, and Maria Lindsey. They would tear you to pieces literally, if they caught you.
The main take away here is that largely pirates were nations unto themselves serving for the greater good of their own crew, and were just as diverse as most places really are. Pirate history is largely ignored by modern day folks mostly because it dosen't match up to what we imagine as pirates today.
But by and large, pirates were freedom fighters.
@archivist hello! Hooray for academic libraries! Hooray for archivists! Seriously though, archivists are often overworked with huge backlogs (in my experience) and little support so thank you for what you do :)
#introductions hello all, I’m a librarian with experience in academic and public libraries. I love the field of librarianship, and almost every librarian I meet is good people. I’m into speculative fiction, old cookbooks, and exploring digital privacy. Hope to learn and grow here. :)
@bgcarlisle ah, I’m new here. Thanks for letting me know.
