Edward Teach, aka “Blackbeard”, was one of the most notorious pirates to sail the sea. Feared by many and respected by all, he carved a path through the Atlantic that forever etched his name in the history books. While he for his skill in battle, he was also notorious for instilling fear into those who met him on the deck. By adding cannon fuse to his beard beforehand, his enemies would believe themselves to be fighting a devil rather than a man as the smoke engulfed his face.
