fac_610 Queen Anne's Revenge "Anchorage of Blackbeard, AKA Edward Teach, who made his home in Bath, N.C. and pillaged the Caribbean and Southern colonial American coast. This is where he lost his head in a dramatic sea battle with the British Navy led by officer Robert Maynerd on November 22, 1718, in which he incurred 5 pistol shots and no less than 27 severe cuts in various parts of his body before being brought down.
Blackbeard only had a skeleton crew of eighteen that day, who were mostly drunk and caught by surprise(it was early.) He and his crew held off a far superior force of the British Navy sent from Virginia--sent perhaps in violation of his royal pardon and with illegal and political reasons--but the "courageous brute" and his crew lost in the end.(by various accounts, Blackbeard had inflicted casualties at about a 3:1 ratio on the attacking British marines and sailors.) He supposedly had intentions of forming a piratical colony and fortress on Ocracoke, like those on Tortuga and New Providence Is."

  •   amundj And this black piece seems like a doorway to a different realm.... well framed interaction with the frames Bill! 1w
  •   kbasta Amund! It was fantastic - a huge retrospective. Lots of gorgeous vintage prints, some really great never-seen posthumous prints: all very nicely curated from his massive archive - plus lots of ephemera (like proof sheets & grant letters) to geek out on. Great show, indeed! @amundj 1w
  •   winniekroghreiff great composition 1w
  •   amundj Aaarrghhh....distances! F..k! @kbasta I must google an impression of this. Or hope they will ship it off to the great photography-museum in Stockholm when NYC feels done with it! 1w
