WANTED FOR PIRACY
Our Krewe pays homage to Captain, Sir Henry Morgan by embracing his legendary bloodthirsty and drinking ways.
Sir Henry Morgan was a hard-drinking, hard-fighting charismatic badass privateer and entrepreneur who sailed the Spanish main during the Golden Age of Piracy, breaking necks, cashing checks, sacking towns, making scurvy bastards walk the plank and generally just being awesome.
At the age of 32, Henry Morgan was entitle "Admiral fo the Brethren of the Coast", which was a loose association of privateers and pirates who came to be known as bucaneers.
In July of 1668, Admiral Morgan led an amazingly ruthless and strategic attack upon Portobello. It was written that he even pulled the mayor, several women and old men, and some friars and nuns from a church in order to use them as a human shield so that his men could advance the castle without casualty. Once the town and its occupants were secured, Morgan's men spent the rest of the day looting and drinking.
Sir Henry Morgan is about as cuthroat as any pirate/privateer could possibly hope to be. He sacked dozens of towns, hauled off as much gold and silver as he could carry, beat anybody who crossed him and was revered as a hero among the entire population of the British Empire. His deeds are so legendary they made a Rum in his honor so his legacy lives on forever.
