The Ambitions And Origins Of Pirates On The Chesapeake

Pirate_cover.jpg
Arcadia Publishing

Throughout Maryland’s history, the Bay’s bounty -- and its access to transatlantic trade -- proved irresistible to pirates.

In her book “Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay,” Jamie Goodall explores the role of these legendary rebels. We hear the stories of a free black man who joined a privateering crew and a prolific Quaker ship builder in Fell’s Point. Original air date: July 28, 2020.
