Pirates: Tides of Fortune

PIRATE LEGEND

The Legend of Kraken
A worker discovered a mysterious book in the attic of the Jayne house as it was being moved from Mulberry Avenue in 2010. The book seemed to detail a giant squid like river monster, a Kraken, which had appeared in Muscatine, near theriver, at key times in our city’s history. Specifically, when Muscatine was growing from one stage of industry to another. Could there be a connection between the giant river monster’s visits and important steps in Muscatine’s story?

According to legend, the Kraken first appeared around 1838. In an early morning display, the beast churned up the water in the slow moving bend on the Mississippi river right where the old high bridge would later stand. A lone observer was there to see it. He was so scared out of his wits that he only told people about it on his death bed. 1838 was the year the first sawmill was built in the city. This was the dawn of a lumber industry that would first put Muscatine on the map.
The anonymous author of the Old Norwegian scientific work Konungs skuggsjá (circa 1250) described in detail the physical characteristics and feeding behavior of these beasts. The narrator proposed there must only be two in existence, stemming from the observation that the beasts have always been sighted in the same parts of the Greenland Sea, and that each seemed incapable of reproduction, as there was no increase in their numbers.

"There is a fish that is still unmentioned, which it is scarcely advisable to speak about on account of its size, because it will seem to most people incredible. There are only a very few who can speak upon it clearly, because it is seldom near land nor appears where it may be seen by fishermen, and I suppose there are not many of this sort of fish in the sea. Most often in our tongue we call it hafgufa. Nor can I conclusively speak about its length in ells, because the times he has shown before men, he has appeared more like land than like a fish. Neither have I heard that one had been caught or found dead; and it seems to me as though there must be no more than two in the oceans, and I deem that each is unable to reproduce itself, for I believe that they are always the same ones. Then too, neither would it do for other fish if the hafgufa were of such a number as other whales, on account of their vastness, and how much subsistence that they need. It is said to be the nature of these fish that when one shall desire to eat, then it stretches up its neck with a great belching, and following this belching comes forth much food, so that all kinds of fish that are near to hand will come to present location, then will gather together, both small and large, believing they shall obtain there food and good eating; but this great fish lets its mouth stand open the while, and the gap is no less wide than that of a great sound or fjord, And nor may the fish avoid running together there in their great numbers. But as soon as its stomach and mouth is full, then it locks together its jaws and has the fish all caught and enclosed, that before greedily came there looking for food."[6]
During the summer of 1891, the Giant River Monster was seen again – this time just a little further upstream, where the Bell Bridge crossing into Illinois sits today.
Few knew of the earlier appearance of a giant river beast. Those that did were reluctant to talk about it. It was simply too fantastic – and they were afraid their sanity would be questioned.
So the river monster’s second visit came as a total surprise to the folk of the bustling river town – and no one suspected any significance. But by the late 1890’s it was clear that the local lumber empires would fully give way to a rapidly growing pearl button industry.

In the hot summer of 1911 the Kraken was back. By then, enough people knew the legend to foresee that change was about to come to their town. And come it did.

Captains!
Are you ready to know who won 500 RUBIES?
You did excellent job and 3 randomly chosen winners get 500 RUBIES each.
So the winners are:
- BlackMud El Ghazali
- Martin Ross
- The-Boss Cobra-Unit
And the correct answers are:

1) When did the first records about pirates appear?

-The oldest evidence of the pirates' existence is an inscription on a clay tablet from the time of Pharo Echnaton (1350 BC). This document describes a pirates' ship attacking in North Africa. There is also an epigraphic evidence from the 340's, from Athens.

2) What pirate was a son of sugar planters and owned 400 acre estate in Barbados before he turned to piracy?

-Stede Bonnet was an unlikely pirate.
The scion of an influential family of Barbados sugar planters,
Bonnet had a wife, children, and estate on that island. A
landlubber, he didn't know how to operate a ship. And yet, in April
1717, Bonnet left Barbados under cover of darkness in the
Revenge, an armed sloop he had had built at a local yard, and
crewed with sympathizers. His piracy career would be troubled.

3) How is this cryptogram connected to the piracy?

- Olivier Levasseur (Calais, 1680 or 1690 - Réunion, 7 July 1730), was a pirate, nicknamed La Buse or La Bouche (The Buzzard) in his early days, called thus because of the speed with which he threw himself on his enemies.The legend tells that when he stood on the scaffold, he had a necklace around his neck, containing a cryptogram of 12 lines, and would have thrown this in the crowd while exclaiming: 'Find my treasure, he who may understand it!'

Congratulations to the winners!

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

... a famous pirate Benjamin Hornigold was first employed as a privateer, or more precisely a pirate hunter. But after the end of the War of the Spanish Succession he turned to piracy. People described him as a skilled captain who was kinder to the prisoners then other pirates. Perhaps Hornigold was most famous as a companion of notorious pirate, Blackbeard.

... pirates had to wear:
-Motley clothing - bright mis-matched colors
-Bandana - A pirate clothing item which kept the sweat out of the pirate's eyes
-Tri-cornered hat - made of various materials including leather
-Doublet or coat - Expensive item of pirate clothing. Long clothes, including the doublet were a style of pirate clothing best suited to land. Decorated with ornate braids and fabrics
-Breeches - trousers were generally only worn by English pirates
-Knitted caps called Monmouth caps
-Waistcoats - flamboyant addition to pirate clothing
-Drawers - tight fitting to allow for the difficult tasks of a pirate
-Stockings - Woollen stockings for practical apparel and silk for land use
-Shirts - The puffed sleeves were suited to pirate clothing on land

...Each pirate was allowed to vote on where the ship was to go or if a colonial ship should be attacked.
Each pirate received an equal share of the booty, with a double share going to the captain, the pilot, the carpenter, the cook, and a share set aside for the maintenance of the ship. Most pirates were paid four times as much as they had ever received as merchant or naval men. However, if no plunder was captured, no one would be paid.

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

PIRATE LEGEND

The Legend of the Flying Dutchman
The Flying Dutchman is ghost ship, said to be crewed by cowards, rogues, and shirkers. In some ways it has even become a generic term meaning any ghost ship. Often it appears in fogs or the edge of storms. It is said that seeing it is a bad omen, and that doom is sure to follow for the unlucky sailor and his ship.
The legend of The Flying Dutchman is said to have started in 1641 when a Dutch ship sank off the coast of the Cape of Good Hope:
Captain Van Der Decken was pleased. The trip to the Far East had been highly successful and at last, they were on their way home to Holland. As the ship approached the tip of Africa, the captain thought that he should make a suggestion to the Dutch East India Company (his employers) to start a settlement at the Cape on the tip of Africa, thereby providing a welcome respite to ships at sea.
He was so deep in thought that he failed to notice the dark clouds looming and only when he heard the lookout scream out in terror, did he realize that they had sailed straight into a fierce storm. The captain and his crew battled for hours to get out of the storm and at one stage it looked like they would make it. Then they heard a sickening crunch - the ship had hit treacherous rocks and began to sink. As the ship plunged downwards, Captain Van Der Decken knew that death was approaching. He was not ready to die and screamed out a curse: "I WILL round this Cape even if I have to keep sailing until doomsday!"
So, even today whenever a storm brews off the Cape of Good Hope, if you look into the eye of the storm, you will be able to see the ship and its captain - The Flying Dutchman. Don't look too carefully, for the old folk claim that whoever sights the ship will die a terrible death.
Many people have claimed to have seen The Flying Dutchman, including the crew of a German submarine boat during World War II and holidaymakers.
On 11 July 1881, the Royal Navy ship, the Bacchante was rounding the tip of Africa, when they were confronted with the sight of The Flying Dutchman. The midshipman, a prince who later became King George V, recorded that the lookout man and the officer of the watch had seen the Flying Dutchman and he used these words to describe the ship:
"A strange red light as of a phantom ship all aglow, in the midst of which light the mast, spars and sails of a brig 200 yards distant stood out in strong relief."
It's pity that the lookout saw the Flying Dutchman, for soon after on the same trip, he accidentally fell from a mast and died. Fortunately for the English royal family, the young midshipman survived the curse.

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

... on the Caribbean island of St Thomas you will find a place called ‘Black Beard’s Castle’. It was built by Danish soldiers that called it Skytsborg and used it as a vantage point to spot enemy ships. In the early 18th century it became part of the lore of the island that he used the tower as a lookout for his own purposes of piracy.It is believed that this is where the famous pirate spent many hours looking out for approaching ships.

... pirates believed that wearing pierced earrings would improve their eyesight.

... when pirates got a new ship, by stealing one or by swapping their existing ship out for a better one belonging to their victims, they usually made some changes. They would mount as many cannons on the new ship as they could without significantly slowing her down: six cannons or so was the minimum that pirates liked to have on board. The pirates usually changed the rigging or ship’s structure so that the ship would sail faster, and cargo spaces were converted into living or sleeping quarters, as pirate ships usually had more men (and less cargo) on board than merchant vessels.

Pirates: Tides of Fortune

One pirate had a parrot who sweared like a sailor. Trouble was that the pirate himself was a quiet, conservative type, and this bird's foul mouth was driving him crazy. One day, it got to be too much, so the guy grabed the bird by the throat, shaked him really hard, and yelled, "QUIT IT!" But this just made the bird mad and he sweared more than ever. Then he got mad and throwed the bird into the freezer. For the first few seconds there was a terrible din.Then it suddenly got very quiet. At first the guy just waited, but then he thought that the bird might be hurt so he opened up the freezer door. The bird calmly climbed onto the man's out-stretched arm and said, "Awfully sorry about the trouble I gave you. I'll do my best to improve my vocabulary from now on. By the way, what did the chicken do?"
