  3. What was a Jacobite?

    Ahoy, mates! I have written an article describing the complex political and historical context of what it meant to be a Jacobite. Please enjoy and parley on the points!

  4. I’ve written another article for my site, CSP Historical, this time about Blackbeard. It’s called “The Firsts of Blackbeard: Exploring Edward Thatch’s Early Days as a Pirate.” By examining Thatch’s early career up to about November of 1717, through the lens of when particular firsts occurred, I help clear away the myths and clutter surrounding Thatch’s early history.

  5. This is astounding. This is Kevin Duffus giving a presentation on March 19 to the Virginia Historical Society, "What's Wrong with Black Beard?" I saw a version of this talk about two years ago in Washington, North Carolina. This version is even better. Even if you disagree with some of his points, the evidence he has found relating to Blackbeard's history I think demonstrates how highly worth discussion and debate his position is. The sheer amount of evidence here has to make you at least think "there are too many coincidences for at least some of it to not be correct. Surely all these names matching all can't just be coincidence (at least some of the "coincidences" must not be coincidences by sheer odds of how many coincidences there are)."
