• Fascinating insight into the pirates who ruled the Old Dominion Coastline

High adventure, dastardly deeds, and newly uncovered lore feature heavily in this fantastic new book from Stackpole. Pirates of Virginia recounts the remarkable stories of the Accomac and Revolutionary war privateers.

Famous characters such as the fearsome English pirate, Edward "Blackbeard" Teach, “the gentleman pirate” Maj. Stede Bonnet, John Paul Jones and William Claiborne are featured in all their splendour within this masterful work.

This book is the story of true pirate lives and their echoes in folklore and popular culture. It exposes their surprisingly democratic codes, lavish dress and extensive collections of weapons which are illustrated by full-colour photographs of rare museum and privately-owned artefacts.
