To the editor: I enjoyed the article by Fred David titled “The Pirate Years 1690-1720 at Ocean Isle Beach.”
In his story, he wrote three pirates who operated in the Ocean Isle Beach area in 1720 were caught and hanged. They were Calico Jack Rackham and two female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read.
I just finished watching the History Channel, and the show featured pirates who sailed the Caribbean. The show stated the above pirates were sentence to hang but only Rackham was actually hanged.
