Blackbeard, Bonnet and the Golden Age of Piracy in Virginia

Saturday, June 4, 2022

While you are in Downtown Hampton enjoying all there is to do and see at the Blackbeard Pirate Festival, take some time visit historic St. John’s Church and hear our guests, historians and authors Dr. Jamie Goodall and Jeremy R. Moss, share their tales of pirates. At 3PM, Join us for Blackbeard, Bonnet and the Golden Age of Piracy in Virginia, a lecture by Jeremy R Moss, emerging author and freelance historian. Using his book, "The Life and Tryals of the Gentleman Pirate, Major Stede Bonnet" as a backdrop, Moss tells the real story of the real pirates of the Golden Age, sharing accounts of their daily life, social issues, natural disasters, political intrigues, bloody battles, walking the plank, flying the Jolly Roger, pirate-speak, and, of course buried treasure, all while weaving in interesting connections to the history of Hampton Roads.
