Transcript of Blackbeard the pirate

better known as Blackbeard, was
a notorious English pirate who operated
around the the West Indies and the eastern
coast of the American colonies during the early 1700s.

Little is known about Blackbeard's early life. It is believed at the time of his death he was about 35-40 yrs. old. He would have been born in about the year 1680. It was the custom of pirates to use fake names so as not to tarnish the family name, and Teach's real name will probably never be known. He most certainly could read and write as he communicated with merchants and had a letter on him upon his death from the Chief Justice Tobias Knight.
