Charleston's Golden Age of Piracy
The true adventures of the pirates with links to Charleston are more exciting and humorous than anything you'll see on the big screen!  Noted pirate historian, Eric Lavender of Charleston Pirate Tours, in period apparel brings Charleston's Golden Age of Piracy to life with stories of Blackbeard's most notorious exploit, the blockade of Charles Towne, the capture and execution of Stede Bonnet and other pirates, the romance between Calico Jack and Anne Bonny, and much more!  The actual stories included in each performance vary, because you just can't fit ALL of Charleston's pirate history into 45 minutes.    

The program, "Golden Age of Piracy," also explores how piracy impacted Charles Towne. It dispels the romantic myths and legends of pirate life and explores the difference between privateers and pirates.  Eric also discusses the politics of piracy.  Did you know that pirate ships operated as a democracy?  Did you know that commerce between pirates and "legitimate" businessmen  was an important part of Charles Towne's early economy?

"Charles Towne's Golden Age of Piracy" is the same presentation previously available only for events and private groups.  The program's popularity prompted Charleston Pirate Tours and the Powder Magazine Museum to make it available to the public on a regular basis.

In addition to numerous network television appearances, Eric Lavender has appeared at museums, events, and schools across the southeast.  

"Thank you so much for your recent visit and special presentations at The Schiele Museum in Gastonia,NC. We really found your programs to be interesting, educational and great for all ages!" Amy Ballard, Schiele Museum of Natural History

"When Eric Lavender walks into the room all activities cease, and the attention is totally focused toward the dreadlocks, the swashbuckling outfit and the parrot.  His stories of life on the Carolina coast as a pirate come alive and his audience is mesmerized.  His attention to detail, his life-like appearance and his ability to tell stories are all part of his alter ego.  The magic comes alive.  He is truly a wonderful teller of stories."  Jeri England, Manager, Edgar Allan Poe Library, Sullivan's Island.
