Ever dreamed of being a “Pirate”? Well you’ve come to the right place! Our group is dedicated to portraying ‘Historically Accurate’ Privateers from the Golden Age of Piracy!!
Learn the difference between pirates and privateers. Hawk and Wolfraven set the stage to teach the true meaning of privateer’s ship and their importance in American History in the 1700’s – 1800’s.
Please notice the first ship drawing – our Cabin Boy, Wyatt drew his picture in 1 1/2 hrs before filming!
