Seafaring Sunday: Leaving Panama
February 26, 1671: Over a three day period beginning February 24, Henry Morgan and his band of buccaneers left Panama City, Panama. They had spent four weeks looting, pillaging, drinking and generally destroying the Spanish city on the Pacific. They would march back across the Isthmus of Panama and depart for Port Royal, Jamaica, whence they had come.
