Blackbeard

By:Rachel Rigsbee, and Kalin Blount

Blackbeard was loveable we know this because he had 14 wives. If somebody was crazy enough to marry him, they had to of have a reason. I assume that Blackbeard must have actually had a sweet side. He just did not show it. He was just mean to the people he was stealing from. he had to be or else he would not get what he wanted.Unfortunately, they all either died or left him. His last wife and him stayed together for a short while. A painting of him and her still exsists today.

Blackbeard cared about his men. We know this because his men were the healthiest, fittest, strongest, African men rerecorded. This shows that he actually cared enough to take care of his men instead of just letting them die, and getting more.
