PIRATES ASHORE – A REENACTMENT OF THE 1646 VISIT OF ENGLISH PRIVATEERS TO PLYMOUTH

For the history buff this is a great event because it demonstrates the tension between the religious Pilgrims and freewheeling privateers. And – small world – privateer Captain Thomas Cromwell carried a letter of marque from the Earl of Warwick, one of the holders of patent of Plymouth Colony. Rowdy sailors arrive by sea, a murder trial, political intrigue, and even a mini-concert of 17th century song – it’s hard to fit it all into one day, but we’ll try.
