Published in February 2020, Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay: From the Colonial Era to the Oyster Wars tells of the golden age of piracy, including Confederate privateers and oyster pirates. The maritime communities of Chesapeake Bay are intimately tied to a fascinating history of intrigue, plunder and illicit commerce raiding.

Dr Jamie Goodall, staff historian with the U.S. Army Center of Military History in Washington, DC, introduces infamous men like Edward "Blackbeard" Teach and "Black Sam" Bellamy, as well as lesser-known local figures like Gus Price and Berkeley Muse, whose tales of piracy are legendary from the harbor of Baltimore to the shores of Cape Charles.
