Howard Thompson of The New York Times wrote, "The Walt Disney people have delivered a delightful seasonal goody for the young and young-hearted, called 'Blackbeard's Ghost.' After a couple of limp herrings, the master's live-action unit is back on sure footing with the neat, perky and flavorsome little comedy-fantasy that arrived yesterday at neighborhood theaters."Directed by: Robert Stevenson. According to A General History of the Pyrates, Blackbeard fought the HMS Scarborough to a draw, a legend disproven in The Republic of Pirates: the frigate’s logs confirm the encounter never took place, though the book offers an alternate explanation. Blackbeard’s gang spent the winter of in Central American waters, before sailing to.

  Though much of his early life remains a mystery, Blackbeard most likely began his life as Edward Teach in the sailing port of Bristol, England. He began&#;his career as a hired British sailor during Queen Anne’s War. He eventually settled in the Bahamas under Captain Benjamin /5(2).   Angus Konstam has written several books on piracy, including The History of Pirates. A former naval officer and museum professional, he is an expert on weapons, shipwrecks, and piracy who has advised several underwater archaeological groups (including the team working on Blackbeard's sunken flagship).Brand: Turner Publishing Company.

Israel Hands was an 18th-century pirate, also known as Basilica Hands. He is best known for being second in command to the infamous pirate Edward Teach, better known as name serves as the basis for the name of the villainous sidekick Israel Hands in Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island; other than this, the fictional character has no other Base of operations: Atlantic, West Indies. Legends and myths about Blackbeard continue three centuries after his death, but the true story is the most incredible of all. With the recent discovery of Blackbeard's sunken ship, 'Queen Anne's Revenge', this book is sure to become as much a treasure as that ill-fated but much sought after shipwreck.
