THE HEADLESS PIRATE OF DAUPHIN ISLAND!!
FRIDAY, APRIL 24th, 2015
7:00 PM at MOBILE'S CARNIVAL MUSEUM
355 GOVERNMENT STREET
For more than three centuries, pirates and piracy thrived and flourished in our own back yard - the Gulf Coast. Marvelous talesabound of swashbuckling encounters involving rogues like Gambi, Lafitte, de Graaf, and Scott.
An English pirate attack against our own Dauphin Island in 1711 brings home the point that piracy affected and influenced local culture, economy, and society from the 17th to the early 19th century.
The headless body of once fierce pirate, Vincenzo (Vincent) Gambi, has been found on the beach, his head is mounted on a 20 foot pole, facing the gulf, for all to see and to serve as a warning to other pirates.
All manner of the pirate population including wenches and exotic dancers have assembled at Barnacle Ben's to discuss and determine who did such a thing, only to find Jacob Mitchell on the beach later, beaten to death with his own wooden leg!!
You will meet William Augustus Bowles (Billy Bow Legs), Jean Lafitte, Laurens De Graaf, Patrick (Paddy) Scott, James Campbell, Sisters of the Sea, Anne Dieu-le-veut, and Jacquotte Delahaye also known as back-from-the-dead-Red. In addition to the pirates we also bring to you, the local 'lady of the evening, Saffonda Peters, an exotic dancer, Sarina, and of course, the proprietor of Barnacle Ben's Tavern, Ben Dolliver.
So, grab your cutlass, don an eye-patch, hoist the Jolly Roger, and climb aboard as we set sail for a glimpse of the characters that charged local waters with their intrigues and exploits. No passports are necessary, only a desire for adventure as we try to determine whodunit!! Come join the mystery and fun!!
