3 Pirate Treasures Never Found off the West Coast of Florida

The following characters are no Captain Jack Sparrow, they are the real deal. Taking Spanish treasure by force and hiding it in the sand for later use. Turns out they have to ditch the booty or get killed before they can bask in their spoils. Their lose, our gain!

• Calico Jack Rackham was another buccaneer who sailed the waters off Florida. Headquartering first in Cuba, he moved to the West Coast of Florida. Here, he buried his $2,000,000 treasure on an island some ten miles up either the Shark or Lostman’s River. (This treasure cache lie buried within the boundaries of the Everglades National Park and it is illegal to do any digging here.)

• In 1864, a U.S. gunboat chased a Confederate ship up the Suwannee River. As the Confederate vessel rounded the second bend of the river, the crew rolled off kegs of gold coins to prevent their capture by the Union gunboat.

• Apalachicola Bay… A Confederate blockade runner went down in the bay north of St. George Island, carrying $500,000 in silver bars and many Spanish coins.

    Has anyone ever heard of indians stealing the booty from 2 or 3 ships from Va and transporting it through the Appalachian mountains (maybe by New River) of Wv? or anything related to this?

    Thanks

  2. It is possible that the indians stole the booty from the 3 pirates from West Fla Coast but I wouldn’t think so because of the much greater distance and obstacles to overcome.

    Thanks

  3. How about the lost history in most of those issue you’ll
    miss you say. So there I go again buying every copy of “Warlock as well as the Infinity Watch” or, God assist me, “The Defenders”.

    One of Hama’s biggest influences inside the comic book
    companies are Carl Barks, and the great unfulfilled ambition is usually to write Uncle
    Scrooge (though he did have a chance to co-create two other
    great Funny Animal characters, namely Peter Porker the Spectacular Spider-Ham and Bucky O’Hare).

  4. It’s going to be ending of mine day, however
    before finish I am reading this great piece of writing to improve my
    knowledge.

  5. 28 oz Delmonte Chunky Diced Zesty Chili Style tomatoes or equivalent.
