Event Description

Join Senior Curator of Education, Zach Zacharias, in the Root Family Museum Train Station for this fun and exciting program.

Join on us on the Hiawatha for a talk about the famous pirate Jack Rackham 1682-1720 commonly known as Calico Jack. He was an English pirate captain operating in the Bahamas and in Cuba during the early 18th century. Jack’s nickname was derived from the calico clothing that he wore. Rackham was active towards the end (1718–1720) of the “Golden Age of Piracy.” He is most remembered for having two female crew members: Mary Read and his lover, Anne Bonny.

Enjoy a selection of adult beverages and snacks after the program.
