People Born on Ile a Vache
Ile a Vache in People's Lives
Henry Morgan: I first came here in 1676, in order to provide my pirate crew with a bit of rest and my fleet of eleven ships with repairs. I was busy planning my upcoming raid on Cartagena for much of the visit. After plans to take this wealthy city were announced, my extensive crew became caught up in a celebration consisting of much rum and dancing. One drunk sailor accidentally set off explosives kept onboard my personal favorite ship, the Oxford. Part of the reason that I loved her so much, besides her being a beautifully designed warship, was because of the irony of her story: She had originally been given as a gift to my friend the Governor of Jamaica from England, meant for use fighting pirates like me. Instead, he gave the ship to me as a gift. Many men were killed in this disaster, and large numbers of men left afterward, seeing it as a bad omen of luck. Though I mourned the loss of my flagship, I purchased another that very night.
