September 26 2008 Today in History Newsletter


Greetings!

YARR! Set sail, me ‘earties! Talk Like a Pirate Day was September 19, but one of the most famous “pirates” in history completed his most famous and historic voyage this week!

Drake's Circumnavigation (September 26, 1580)
Sir Frances Drake, one of the most famous privateers, completed a voyage around the world. What happened on that voyage? Piracy, of course! What's the difference between piracy and priavteering? There is a difference, though it has become grayed. How much was this trip worth...
