Blackbeard is the most famous pirate ever to sail in the seven seas .
He knew the importance of his image in his line of work. Before the battle, he would dress all in black, strap several pistols to his chest and put on a large black captain’s hat. Then, he would put slow burning fuses in his hair and beard. The fuses constantly sputtered and gave off smoke, which wreathed him in a perpetual greasy fog. He looked like a devil who had stepped right out of hell and onto a pirate ship and most of his victims simply surrendered their cargo rather than fight him. On November 22, 1718, Blackbeard was cornered by two Royal Navy sloops that had been sent to hunt him down. At that time , most of his man were at the shore , so he decided to fight . But in the end , Blackbeard was killed .
