Blackbeard was a nasty and wicked pirate. He was active from 1716-18. He was born in 1680 in Bristol, England and stayed there until he became a pirate. He became a privateer, which were legal pirates, during Queen Anne’s war. Once the war was over, many men were left with no jobs and some became pirates, including Edward. He became the captain of a pirate ship called Queen Anne’s revenge and sailed in the Caribbean. He was a very cruel captain and once he even shot someone in the legs!

Giovanni “John” Cabot was a successful, and adventurous Italian explorer/navigator, who is known for making big discoveries. He is known for discovering and claiming land in Canada, and somewhere in North America off the coast of the Labrador Peninsula.

In an era when spices were just as sought after as precious silks, several countries participated in a race to find trade routes to Asia. Christopher Columbus imagined a path across the Atlantic, one that led to a dead end: the Americas. Suddenly, the goal of the race changed. Countries began searching for a strait that connected the Atlantic and the Pacific, opening a route to the Spice Islands.

During the course of the expedition, Magellan faced much opposition and made many decisions that may be deemed questionable today, decisions that led to his eventual demise in battle. Many of his men were against saving their captain, raising a question: was Magellan valuable enough to save? Though Ferdinand Magellan achieved his goals through dubious means, his crew would have found it auspicious had they saved him, due to his extraordinary navigation skills and strategy

This prize is the reuniting of the country as well as freedom and liberty for slaves. Lincoln’s ideas were impactful on society but Lincoln was killed for them. On the
