Pirates & Slaves: Making America By Baylus C. Brooks
Paperback: List Price: $19.95 $16.96 | You Save: 15%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Making America was a compromise between democracy and brutality – between pirates and slavers. Piracy was a business, long accepted as valid in America – arguably still accepted today.... More > America held onto it tightly. Once legitimized into a sovereign, slaving nation, piracy moved to the land and became a system of economics only slightly removed from piracy itself. It became our “Manifest Destiny” to spread it across the continent and, eventually the world. See how the Bahamas and its sister colony Carolina became the pirate stronghold that they did through neglect of its wealthy private owners - how pirates came to Carolina and developed a unique conservative ideology that survives today. See where American conservatism began – from New Providence to the Lower Cape Fear - enmeshed in the violent wilderness “beyond the lines of amity” – competition and sport, stealing treasure and burning ships - with Caribbean Buccaneers and Pirates of the Golden Age!< Less

Over 2 lbs, with 614 pages of text, tables, and graphs! Do you know who "Blackbeard the Pirate" was? Probably not! Born into a substantial family in Bristol, the eldest son of Capt. Edward... More > and Elizabeth Thache sailed for Jamaica with his family sometime before 1695. Capt. Edward Thache of St. Jago de la Vega or "Spanish Town" died there at age 47 while his son, Edward “Blackbeard” Thache Jr. joined the Royal Navy and fought in Queen Anne’s War aboard HMS Windsor. Thache resembled more a Robber Baron of the early 20th century than a poor downtrodden member of Benjamin Hornigold's "Flying Gang" in the Bahamas - or even his "pupil." Capt. Charles Johnson's "A General History of the Pyrates" is a flawed historical work and much of what we have previously known about Blackbeard is simply not true. This book attempts to rediscover exactly who Blackbeard really was... and how he related to his maritime American "Pirate Nation!" Quite a few surprises are in store!

Brunswick Town and Wilmington By Baylus C. Brooks
Paperback: $9.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This story of Brunswick Town, the Cape Fear region’s first port city, provided a deep-water port that accommodated trans-Atlantic shipping on the only easily accessible river in the colony of... More > North Carolina. Contemporary accounts stated that it was like to be a “flourishing place,” while town lot sales reflected its profitability in 1731. However, Brunswick Town was not destined to remain and its founder, Maurice Moore and his family would suffer great economic trials as a result of the founding of Wilmington across the river. Gov. George Burrington's opposition to the Family was wholly political. Brunswick Town barely lasted until the American Revolution and today, remains only a vague memory. Baylus C. Brooks, author of Blackbeard Reconsidered: Mist's Piracy, Thache's Genealogy, delivers another brand new view of North Carolina's history!< Less

Captain James Wimble of Hastings, Sussex County, England: American Merchant, Founder, and Privateer By Baylus C. Brooks
Paperback: $9.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
From the author of Blackbeard Reconsidered! James Wimble was best known for his map of the Lower Cape Fear Region in 1733, and especially for his final map of 1738. Wimble saved the fledgling port... More > town of Wilmington, North Carolina from certain ruin. As Alan D. Watson, in Wilmington, North Carolina, to 1861 put it, Wimble “no doubt was the prime instigator of the new town.” Londoners would remember him for his exploits as a privateer in the War of Jenkins Ear, in the 1740’s. Many of the British local “rags” describe him as taking prizes of great “burthen” and “rich cargo.” These exciting times for English readers proved less than exuberant for Wimble, however. What we know of him during that time mostly comes from British records. His wife died, he lost an arm to chain shot in 1742, and later, almost his life while chasing down a Spanish ship through the Florida Keys in a ship that he named “Revenge.” In his final days, James Wimble went back to London to engage in the timber trade.< Less
