NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC’S REAL PIRATES EXHIBITION Presented by the Northwestern Mutual Foundation Opened December 14, 2012 at the Milwaukee Public Museum

Interactive Exhibition Showcases Treasure and Artifacts from First Fully
Authenticated Pirate Ship Discovered in U.S. Waters.

Milwaukee, WI—December 4, 2012—Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah, a touring
exhibition organized by National Geographic, Premier Exhibitions, Inc. and Arts and Exhibitions
International (AEI) LLC will make its Milwaukee Public Museum debut presented by the Northwestern Mutual Foundation. The exhibition explores early 18th-century piracy with more than 200 artifacts recovered from the ocean floor.
From the producers of the recent blockbuster exhibition Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the
Pharaohs, Real Pirates tells the true story of the Whydah — a real pirate ship that sank off the coast of Cape Cod nearly 300 years ago — and showcases treasure chests of coins and gold, jewelry, weaponry such as cannons, pistols, and knives, and a replica of the actual ship that visitors can board.
Real Pirates provides visitors with an unprecedented glimpse into the unique economic, political and
social circumstances of the early 18th-century Caribbean. The exhibition is highlighted by the compelling stories of the diverse people whose lives converged on the vessel before it was sunk in a fierce storm off the coast of Cape Cod, Mass. on April 26, 1717.
When the Whydah was located by underwater explorer Barry Clifford in 1984, it became the first fully authenticated pirate ship to be discovered in American waters. Clifford is still actively excavating the wreck site and continues to bring treasures to the surface every year.
“Discovering the Whydah was the most exciting moment in my career,” said Clifford. “The sheer volume of artifacts the Whydah carried, from more than 50 other ships captured by the pirate captain Sam Bellamy and his men, provides a rare window into the otherwise mysterious world of 18th-century pirates. I see this exhibition as the culmination of my many years of work. Most importantly, it is a chance to bring the real story of pirates to the public as it's never been told before — through real objects last touched by real pirates.”
Real Pirates relates the stories of four members of the Whydah crew — actual people who ended up on the same pirate ship for very different reasons — such as John King, the youngest known pirate on board the Whydah, who was believed to be younger than 11 at the time of the shipwreck. When the ship he was traveling on with his mother was taken over by Bellamy, young John insisted on taking up with the pirate crew, despite his mother’s objections.
A dozen multimedia galleries showcase the reality of the slave trade in West Africa and the economic prosperity in the Caribbean in the early 18th century, the Whydah’s journey, the ship’s capture by Bellamy, the violent storm that sank the ship, its discovery by Clifford, and the recovery and conservation of its artifacts. Artifacts include pirate dress items, daily objects used aboard the ship, weaponry, jewelry and treasure from all over the world, including authentic coins that visitors can touch. One of the most striking artifacts that will be on view is the ship’s bell, inscribed “Whydah Galley 1716,” which was used to authenticate the shipwreck site as that of the Whydah.
Whydah History The three-masted, 300-ton galley Whydah was built as a slave ship in London in 1715 and represented the most advanced technology of her day. She was easy to maneuver, unusually fast and, to protect her cargo, heavily armed. She was built to transport human captives from the West Coast of Africa to the Caribbean, but only made one such voyage before being captured by pirates. In February 1717, after the slaves were sold in the Caribbean, the Whydah was captured off the Bahamas by Sam Bellamy, one of the boldest and most successful pirates of his day. Bellamy and his crew hoisted the Jolly Roger — the slave ship was now a pirate ship.
Just two months later, on April 26, 1717, in one of the worst nor’easters ever recorded, the Whydah, packed with plunder from more than 50 captured ships, sank off the Massachusetts coast. All but two of the 146 people on board drowned.
“This was a unique period in our history,” said Jeffrey Bolster, professor of early American and
Caribbean history at the University of New Hampshire. “Through the cache of artifacts brought to the surface by Clifford and his team, we see a world generally undisclosed, one in which the Caribbean was the economic center and values were very different, an era before civil rights, before individual liberties and before democracy was institutionalized. Without the slave trade and the wealth of the region, piracy would not have existed. This is a story of the making of America — a true story more powerful than fiction.”
Bolster is a member of an advisory panel composed of academic and other scholarly experts that was created by exhibition organizers to review and provide feedback on proposed content for the exhibition. In 1984, some 270 years after the Whydah sank, Clifford found the first remains of the ship. In a recovery operation that spans more than two decades, Clifford and his team have documented the wreck site and artifacts with Olympus digital camera equipment and brought up thousands of artifacts, not only gold and silver, but everyday objects that shed light on this tumultuous period of American and world history.
