Think "pirate" and your mind fills with stories of wild thugs from fiction and fancy. But now North America's only known pirate shipwreck is giving us glimpses of a more complex and interesting truth. The Whydah sank off New England in April 1717. Her captain, "Black Sam" Bellamy, and 143 others died with her. Armed with Whydah clues and informed imaginations, historians have begun speculating about Bellamy's crew. For anyone intrigued by the lore of piracy, the mystery of shipwrecks, or the sad and salty intertwining of slave and pirate history, Real Pirates has the answers.
