Walking the Plank

Harrrr Mateys
Today be Wednesday so it be Cap'n Mavericks School of Piracy Harrrr.
Today we talking about walking the plank Harrrrrrr. The myth started about 100 B.C. Pirates preyed on Roman shipping in the Mediterranean. The Romans captives would be told they could walk home but the only way off the ship was over the railing Harrrr.

There is only one account of a real walking the plank Harrrr. The Cap'n was George Wood. His mutinous mates forced a number of loyal crewmen "to walk the Plank" extended from the ship's side Harrr.
That is all of the plank story yer Cap'n could find Harrrr.
