International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Pirates do not appear in New Bedford. By the height of the golden age of whaling in the middle of the 19th century, pirates had been virtually eliminated from the oceans. Even by the time of the War of 1812, the only attacks on American whaleships were due to “legalized” piracy by privateers during war. Nevertheless, to our ears 19th century whalers sound a lot like pirates, and, so, we at Oakleaf Games will be celebrating International Talk Like a Pirate Whaler day.
