Arr, we all be knowin' Blackbeard as a true flesh and blood PYRATE - I be tellin' his story many a time for nigh on three hundred years.   

Some scurvy dogs call Blackbeard a murdering, pirate monster - sinking ships, plundering, pillaging and giving no quarter.  But was he now?  Aye, that's for me to tell.  So come a little closer, me hearties, I be tellin' you 'bout me friend and me captain, Blackbeard the Pirate, or my name not be Israel Hand, his trusted First Mate, and aye, fellow conspirator.  So, come on now, be quick about it and welcome aboard.  There be pirates aboard.  Destination - Caribbean and the Eastern Seacoast of the Americas!
