Transcript of BLACKBEARD
In November of 1717 Blackbeard captured La Concorde,a large French slaving vessel.He renamed the 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.
Blackbeard's mission was to get coins,
gold,silver,and jewelry from ships with
passengers and cargo
On November 22, 1718, Blackbeard was cornered by two Royal Navy sloops that had been sent to hunt him down. The pirate had relatively few men, as most of his men were on shore at the time, but he decided to fight. He almost got away, but in the end was brought down in hand-to-hand fighting on the deck of his ship. When Blackbeard was finally killed, they found five bullet wounds and twenty sword cuts on his body.His body was thrown into the water, and legend has it that it swam around the ship three times before sinking.
