"Pirates of Chesapeake Bay"

Life in Coastal Virginia in the 17th and 18th centuries was difficult at best, and made

even worse  by the presence of pirates, who not only attacked ships at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, but frequently came ashore in Princess Anne County and raided farms, stealing food, livestock, and whatever valuables they could find. Eliminating pirates in Virginia was a major goal of both Govenor Nickolson and Governor Spotswood,

who was responsible for putting an end to Blackbeard's reign of terror.

In our program two costumed interpreters, a pirate, and a tavern owner, will relate stories about their roles in society and how they managed a mutually beneficial relationship. They will discuss societal rules, food, superstitions, the economy,

and many other topics related to their lives.

The house will be open for tours every half hour.

Free for members, a small fee for non-members.

We will also have books for sale, new and used. All profits will benefit the

Princess Anne County/Virginia Beach Historical Society
