Transcript of Blackbeard
By: Alexia Loyed
Blackbeard was once a pirate, his original name is Edward Teach. He became a pirate because the king hired them, to stop the spanish.
Blackbeard was a notorious English pirate who operated around the West Indies and the eastern coast of the American colonies. Although little is known about his early life, he was likely born in Bristol, England. He was the most famous pirate of his time. His best mate was Israel Haynes.
Blackbeard, and his crew wanted Money, and goods.
In November of 1717, Blackbeard captured La, Concorde. A large french slave vessel.He renamed it Queen Anne's Revenge, and kept it for himself, modifying it for piracy. He put 40 cannons on it making it one of the most formidable pirate ships ever. With it he terrorized the Atlantic and Caribbean for almost a year until Queen Anne's Revenge ran aground.
Then, after they captured the La, Concorde. They took a man in known as Frenchie. Or so they thought.... Frenchie was actually a women in disguise. They only one that ever knew that secret was Israel Haynes.
This is the Flag that was on
Blackbeard ended up marrying a classy lady named Mary Ormond. She wanted to make him civil. But that didn't work well. Soon she was on the ship with black beard, and was never seen again.
Blackbeard shot Israel Haynes in the leg to save his life. Israel Haynes lived through this time, he died in 1831.

Legend has it that Blackbeard's body swam around the ship 3 times before sinking
Black beard was not going to run from a fight. On November 22, 1718 blackbeard was cornered by two Royal Navy sloops, that had been sent out to hunt him down. The pirate was relatively few men as most of his men were on shore at the time, but like Blackbeard, he decided to fight. He almost got away... but in the end, he was brought hand in hand to fighting on the deck of his own ship. When Blackbeard was killed they found 5 bullet wounds, and 20 sword cuts on his body. His body was thrown in the water and the head was connected on to the Royal Navy's Boat.
In 1718 Blackbeard took a visit to North Carolina. and accepted a pardon from Governor Charles Eden. He may have wanted to leave piracy behind, but his retirement didn't last long. Before long Blackbeard had struck a deal with the crooked Governor: Loot for protection. Eden helped Blackbeard appear legit, and Blackbeard shared his takings. It was an arrangement that benefited them both, up until Blackbeards death.
