Ahoy Mates: Set sail with a good read
Ahoy, mates. Can you guess which movie I saw over the weekend? There is something about a rebel pirate that really gets my imagination going. I understand that real pirates were not to be idealized, but today’s movie pirate can be rather charming. Okay, maybe I should say that I find Johnny Depp rather charming, pirate or not.
Anyhoo, I picked up Richard Zacks’ book “The Pirate Coast: Thomas Jefferson, the First Marines, and the Secret Mission of 1805” for the excitement. What I found was a compelling history lesson on the early stages of the U.S. Marine Corps.
