About this event

The Havre de Grace Arts Collective 4th Anniversary Celebration presents: ARTiculate Lecture Series: Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay Featuring author Jamie L.H. Goodall, PhD

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. Author Jamie L.H. 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.

Goodall is a staff historian at the U.S. Army Center of Military History in Washington, D.C. She taught at The Ohio State University and Stevenson University in Baltimore, MD. And volunteers for the organization GlobalMaritimeHistory.com.
