Edward Teach

Edward Teach, was a pirate known as Blackbeard. With his fearsome appearance, Blackbeard is often credited with the creation of the stereotypical image of a pirate. Teach had a thick, black beard which was braided and tied with ribbons. To look intimidating, he went into battle with three pairs of pistols strapped across his chest, daggers and pistols in his belt, a cutlass, and a slow-burning thick hemp cord tucked under his hat which produced lots of smoke.
