Speaker Series: Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay from the Colonial Era to the Oyster Wars by Jamie L. H. Goodall
June 9 @ 7:00 pm
Jamie L. H. Goodall, Staff Historian with the U.S. Army Center of Military History
From the golden age of piracy to Confederate privateers and oyster pirates, the maritime communities of the Chesapeake Bay are intimately tied to a fascinating history of intrigue, plunder and illicit commerce raiding. Goodall introduces infamous men like Edward “Blackbeard” Teach and “Black Sam” Bellamy, as well as lesser-known local figures like Gus Price and Berkeley Muse, whose tales of piracy are legendary from the harbor of Baltimore to the shores of Cape Charles. In this talk, Goodall will focus on the Oyster Wars of the 19th century and the untimely death of Berkeley Muse.
