RE: [Discussion Post]: Did Blackbeard the Pirate Intentionally Sink the Queen Anne's Revenge?

in #history7 months ago

If I am going to be honest, my opinion is that it was an accident. As menacing as it would be, why would Blackbeard feel the need to quit while he was ahead? He had had the Queen Anne's revenge for months, and a lot of what he was doing was going in his favor. I don't think Blackbeard would have quit at that point. If he had been one to quit while ahead, he would have quit much sooner.
