Biography

  • In 1720, Rackham's ship was captured by one of Bahamian Governor Woodes Rogers' pirate-hunters - one Captain Jonathan Barnet - off the coast of Jamaica. During the fight, Rackham apparently cowered in the hold along with most of the crew, while the two women stayed on deck and attempted to fight off the attackers. www. geographia.com
