A few shots from our "Morgans Retreat" photo series.
Captain Morgans crew had but one last trip to make back to shore, to pick up the remainder of the spoils from their
successful invasion of a town at Lake Maracaibo.
Without warning, the Spanish attacked; regrouping at the last moment, in a desperate effort to save their pride and
hopefully bag the few buccaneers, left guarding the last of their ill gotten plunder.
Will a few exhausted buccaneers fend off a counter attack from the determined Spanish garrison, or will
they become food for the sharks?
in the hot Caribbean sun, the enemies clash.
With a lucky thrust to the right shoulder, the buccaneer disables the Spaniard.
Enough time is gained to allow Morgans returning men to land and assist the few buccaneers guarding
the booty. Evenso, the buccaneers must retreat, leaving a few crates of goods on shore.
The Spanish win the final battle, but have lost most of their prized possessions to that infamous buccaneer,
Tall Ships, Halifax 2007 Event
Living History For Hire was asked to set up a booth and display, as well as welcome visitors at the
Tall Ships event on July 2007.
We held regular historical demonstrations, displayed movie props from various productions,
fired our cannon for the enthusiastic crowd, supplied historical retail items for visitors,
and met thousands of wonderful people.
The event was an overwhelming success for the City of Halifax, the Halifax Waterfront Development Corp., and
Ourselves. We participated in commercials, a music video, and a staged play on the mainstage at
the Halifax water front and were seen on television.
Photos comiong soon.....
Discover Oak Island Days, Nova Scotia 2007
We participated in "Discover Oak Island Days", organized by the Oak Island Tourism Society on
August 2007. We set up an historical display, focusing on Pirates, to commemorate the legend of
Captain William Kidd supposedly burying his treasure there.
Our static display was set up at the local community center, we participated in the local parade,
(won two prizes), and later staged a reenactment of the burying of Kidds' treasure right on
legendary Oak Island itself. The tourists/visitors loved us and a great time was had by all.
Click on thumbnail pics to see full size.
As you can see, there was quite a crowd on the island that weekend.
The tour went well, and the visitors appreciated our Captain Kidd treasure
The last few people to leave that day, noticed a human
shaped shadow, but nowhere could they see another person.
Could this have been Kidd, bedding us good riddance or inviting us back next year??
