A silver-lined skull. Fourteen wives. Buried treasure. A violent temper. “A Bristol man born.”
Almost everything we know about the mysterious “Blackbeard” is based on legend.
But what is true and what isn’t?
Join Angus “Quill” MacBlaquart, Chronicler of Sea Captains and Kings, and resident of Beaufort in the middle of the eighteenth century, on an interactive journey of discovery and initiation. Visit local points of piratical interest in “Fish Town” (the former name of Beaufort), learn the ways of the pirates, and, through the storytelling magic of Quill’s personal journal, meet Blackbeard’s closest allies and enemies: Charles Vane, Benjamin Hornigold, Sam Bellamy, Lt. Robert Maynard, and Stede Bonnet while learning some of the early history of Beaufort.
In the end, it’ll be up to you which story you want to tell—the Truth—or the Legend—of Blackbeard.
Created by writer/actor/director Joey Madia exclusively for Port City Tours.
