The "pirate's vengeance" on the back of card tells a story about the black beard: in May 1718, he led four pirate ships to seal off the South Carolina capital of Charleston, looted ships in the port and kidnapped many hostages. It also included many members of the municipal government, and as a result, the government had to pay a huge ransom.
In the end he not only had to grab a lot of cargo, but also ransomed enough money for him to enjoy a lifetime. So he was greedy and eager to swallow the property. He set a trap and left his men dying on an island, but he left with 40 confidants. Two days later, these abandoned pirates were rescued by occasionally passing English Major Bennett.
Blackbeard, who was unsympathetic to his acquaintances, also angered all pirates who had come back alive at the time. They contacted many merchants who had been harmed by black beards, and the plantation owners together found the Governor of Virginia, Stephens, determined to kill the “black moustache” at all costs and determined to revenge him. In the end, the famous black bearded commandment.

They are brothers who are ruthlessly abandoned by the black beard. Although they have turned into skull, the vengeance is fierce and fierce. The action is vivid, and the gloomy picture allows you to cool back.
