Research NotesEdit

  • The book which Johns mentions, General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pirates by Captain Charles Johnson really does exist. Charles Johnson is believed to be a pseudonym for Daniel Defoe. The text book does mention a pirate (probably fictional) named Captain James Misson in connection with a Dominican priest Carriocioli and Captain Thomas Tew and their founding of the colony of Libertatia. The book is, of course, now in the public domain and may be found readily on the Internet.[1]
