    I found Mary Read's story the most interesting as well...Blackbeard was cool too- I would have voted for him if Mary Read hadn't been a choice.

    Jean Lafite, he built his fort in my home town of Grand Isle, LA for the Battle of New Orleans.

    People in southern Louisiana have been looking for Lafite's treasure for many years now, and they still haven't found it.

    Francis Drake has the coolest name!

    No, really. I'm serious. I wish my last name was "Drake."

    Blackbeard spent a lot of time hiding in the inlets and such here in eastern North Carolina, particularly near a town called Bath, NC. When I was a kid, the town of Bath used to put on an outdoor drama about Blackbeard every summer and it was great! It always ended with a huge battle and the beheading of Blackbeard, which used to scare me when I was little, but I still enjoyed it.
