Talking Pirates in Camden, Maine, April 22
I'll be giving a talk about Maine and the Golden Age Pirates at the Camden Public Library in Camden, Maine on April 22nd, starting at 6:30 pm.
As readers of the Republic of Pirates know, the Bahama-based pirate gang frequented out-of-the-way, thinly settled, Indian-war-ravaged places like Maine and North Carolina to hide out from the law after blockading major ports. Documentary evidence proves several visited Cape Elizabeth, Damariscove, and Monhegan Island, and there's reason to believe somebody set up camp in Machias, though it wasn't Sam Bellamy.
If you live in or near Midcoast Maine, come on by and say hello.
