This insightful book offers a glimpse into North America's naval history and the pirates and privateers who scourged the Atlantic coast throughout the 19th century.
Pirates and privateers sailed from New Brunswick ports throughout the 19th century, but their exploits began in earnest during the War of 1812. Amid tales of battles at sea and fortunes lost and won, Trimming Yankee Sails examines the murky context in which these semi-legal marauders operated and reveals surprising truths about the Confederation and its promoters.Author: Faye Kert
