Site Reference Sources
Below is a list of internet and book sources that were of a great help in the making of this website, including the individual pirate biographies. Without whose hard work and research into the subject these pages would not have been possible. I have attempted to verify much of the information used on this site by comparing different sources. But with some of the information shown I could not find a second source to confirm it's accuracy. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between truth and fiction when dealing with "Piracy of Old". As the personal accounts and events written about took place several hundred years ago. So many stories and tales have been told over the years that they begin to merge fantasy with reality. Therefore if you are using this website to help you write an historically factual account, you should keep this in mind and try to find other sources to check there accuracy.
Most of the music and artwork used on this site was found by many long hours of searching the internet over the years for non-copyrighted material. Some is copyrighted and used by permission of the owner. Also some of the images presented within Brethren of the Coast were created by me exclusively for this website. I do not sell copies of the music or images used on this site. It is there strictly for my site visitors to enjoy while browsing through it. If I am using anyone's copyrighted material by mistake, I can be contacted through this email link. No infringement of copyrights was intended in the creation and publishing of this website. I shall remove such material or give credit to the rightful owner at their request providing they have reasonable proof of ownership. I sincerely hope this website will be helpful and enjoyable to those interested in the subject of piracy in the golden age.
A special thanks to artist Chris Collingwood for allowing me to use an image of his wonderful Blackbeard painting on the main page for Brethren of the Coast. You can see more of this fine artists work at www.collingwoodhistoricart.com Two songs used on this site "Yo,Ho,Ho (And a Bottle of Rum)" and "Shiver Me Timbers" are from the CD - Pirates of the Caribbean: Swashbuckling Sea Tales. It is a fun sounding album that is highly recommended. Most of all, a very special thank you to my lovely wife Lady Morningstar for her patience, understanding, and support of me in the making of this website.
