Description

This is the digital edition of John S.C. Abbott’s ‘Captain William Kidd and Others of the Pirates or Buccaneers Who Ravaged the Seas, the Islands, and the Continents of America Two Hundred Years Ago’ first published in 1874. 

Captain William Kidd (22 January 1645 – 23 May 1701) was either one of the most notorious pirates in the history of the world or one of its most unjustly vilified and prosecuted privateers in an age typified by the rationalization of empire. Despite the legends and fiction surrounding this character, his actual career was punctuated by only a handful of skirmishes followed by a desperate quest to clear his name.
