From the Author
If you like your pirate stories real, not from Hollywood, the action vividlydescribed, the sentences final, then this is the book for you.
Not flashy, no sex, no introspective passages with the exception of the condemnedpirate about ready to be hung, drawn and quartered, just real history.
The story of the steamship Chesapeake which was taken over by a band of piratesafter it left New York City on its regular voyage to Portland, Maine in 1863during the height of the Civil War in America - is told in the words of actualcourt documents.
With an eye to retaining the authenticity of the original documents, out-of-useterms are modernized only to the degree needed to explain the story. What isamazing is the outcome of the proceedings when the United States attempted tosecure the extradition of the pirates of the Chesapeake, who claimed that theywere Confederate Army regulars seizing the ship by use of authorization fromJefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy.
A mutiny of the crew of a British warship also finds its way to a United StatesFederal Courtroom. Read on and learn what happened to those vicious pirateswhen they had their day in court.
