Florida Pirates: Fact & Fiction
July 12 | 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Thomas Lockyear, Manager of Museum of the Everglades, began his career as a Museum Professional at the Pirate Soul Museum in Key West. Mr. Lockyear will explore our fascination with nautical history’s most notorious ne’er-do-wells and discuss their exploits (or lack thereof) in our coastal waters. Did Jack Rackam roam Cape Romano? Did Gasparilla really build a castle off Boca Grande? Who was the Pirate of Panther Key? Join us for this arrr-some presentation and find out for yourself.
