Captured by pirates?
Pirates covered a large area of the seas during their heyday, and you'll find museums and exhibits dedicated to them in quite a few places. Some years ago, when we stopped at the town of Bath on our way to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, we saw an exhibit on Blackbeard, who was captured and executed in that area. We ran into stories of pirates when we went to Cartagena, Colombia as well, because Sir Francis Drake attacked the city at one juncture.
See my webpage on the Bahamas for more pictures and information.
