Seafaring Sunday: End of the Ladies' Man
November 20, 1720: "Calico" Jack Rackham is hanged for piracy in Spanish Towne, Jamaica after a very brief trial. His lover, Anne Bonny, famously told him "If you had fought like a man, you wouldn't be hangin' like a dog," as he was being taken to the gallows.
