ABOUT WHO WAS BLACKBEARD?

A young British sailor who may have been born Edward Teach
A pirate whose fearsome appearance frightened his enemies
The inspiration for pirate lore and legend for nearly three hundred years

Though much of his early life remains a mystery, Blackbeard most likely began his life as Edward Teach in the sailing port of Bristol, England. He began his career as a hired British sailor during Queen Anne’s War. He eventually settled in the Bahamas under Captain Benjamin Hornigold who taught the young sailor to go “a-pirating.” Soon enough, Blackbeard was commanding his own fleet and stealing ships around the Caribbean and up and down the Eastern seaboard. Known for his thick, black beard and fearsome reputation, the legend of Blackbeard has influenced pirate legend and lore for over 300 years.
