Abstract:
David Moore began his search for Blackbeard's ship, the QUEEN ANNE'S REVENGE, in 1982, when he was a graduate student in East Carolina University's Maritime Studies program. Years as a history detective and Blackbeard researcher paid off in 1996 when the ship was located near the site he predicted the wreck lay. Moore used old charts and records in London, Virginia, and North and South Carolina in his search, but it was a document found in ECU's Joyner Library that was the key piece. Moore is curator of nautical archaeology at the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort.
