Pirates & Tampa Bay: Super Bowl LV

Check out my latest on Pirates & Tampa Bay with Made By History in The Washington Post! You can find it here. The article focuses on the legend of Jose Gaspar and the history of pirates in Tampa Bay. It asks whether or not we should celebrate and romanticize these ruthless murderers, thieves, and slavers. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my knowledge and love of pirate history. Let me know what you think!
