Real Pirates features the story of pirate Sam Bellamy and the ship Whydah, one of the most notorious pirate ships of the early 1700s. Whydah was captured by Bellamy and his crew and subsequently captured over 50 additional ships. Whydah sank in 1717 and was discovered 300 years later. The Real Pirates exhibit will be at the Milwaukee Public Museum until May 27, 2013.
