In the summer of 1718, the pirate Blackbeard ran his flagship Queen Anne’s Revenge aground near Beaufort. Blackbeard and his crew were unhurt and abandoned the ship, taking with them everything they thought was valuable. But, for those of us who are enamored with 18th-century ships, pirates, and colonial history, plenty of treasure remains!
