The Golden Age of Piracy: The History of Rhode Island Pirates and Pirate Hunters


Tuesday, May 14th at 6:30 PM in the Community Room

Presented by Luca Rebussini from Cranston, R.I.  Luca is a 6th grade social studies teacher at Jenks Middle School in Pawtucket, R.I. He began his pirate history speeches roughly two years ago out of a combination of a love of Rhode Island history, passion for teaching, and the fun of learning about the remarkable stories of pirates. 

Topics discussed during this presentation will include why people became pirates, how pirate ships were run, weapons and tactics used, politics of the pirates, the government, the colonies, as well as how piracy ended.

Welcome aboard as we discuss this hidden part of Rhode Island's history!

Program is free and open to all. Registration required.
