In update two of three, in this episode we talk through some of the more recent discoveries about the last days of Blackbeard. Part of this came from the article "The Last Days of Blackbeard" by Colin Woodard from Smithsonian Magazine's February 2014 issue. Hat-tip to listener Andy who conveniently sent us a note about the article not long before we embarked on a series of updates.

We also talk about some listener mail from Carrie, who wrote about the ongoing salvage effort surrounding the Queen Anne's Revenge.
