Governor Spotswood Proclamation

Add to Cart:

Starting at: £10.00

This is a replica of the Rewards given for capturing pirates proclamation issued by A. Spotswood the then Governor of Virginia in 1718.

It specifically mentions Blackbeard and is particularly relevant as it was Governor Spotswood who hired the sloops that were used to trap Blackbeard. The proclamation was actually issued after Blackbeard's death but before Governor Spotswood had received the news of this event.

Also included in this Pack is a British Broadsheet newspaper from April 1719 reporting on the Death of Blackbeard from the British Admiralty Reports
