About this Item

Title

  • The Kislak Pirates Symposium: Panel I, part 2.

Summary

  • Within some 50 years of its discovery, the Americas became a great and growing source of wealth for the Spanish crown. Silks, spices, precious metals and gems flowed across the Pacific to Mexico and Panama as silver and gold were transported across the Gulf of Mexico from Cuba to Spain. Pirates and privateers preyed on these vessels, often as commissioned agents sent out against the enemies of their sovereigns or as renegades for their own personal gain. An all-day symposium, "Pirates and Corsairs of the Americas in History and Literature," was sponsored by the Rare Book and Special Collections Division and the Hispanic Division, in conjunction with the "Exploring the Early Americas" exhibition. Finishing out Panel I was featured speaker Peter Earle who discussed "The British Navy and the War Against the Pirates."
