The Flying Gang would challenge an empire and their colonial counterparts would soon do the same. They shared a desire for freedom from tyranny and had much in common, in particular rum. The colonies' production of rum was on an industrial scale until the crown taxed molasses and sugar exports from the Caribbean to the colonies in a series of Acts, culminating in the Stamp Act of 1765. Not only did this lead directly to the American Revolution but to celebrate the victory, George Washington personally ordered that rum be served to all at the first inauguration in 1789. America would not be denied!
The Flying Gang story however starts a few years earlier, off the coast of La Florida, when in 1715, the Spanish Treasure Fleet sank during a hurricane. The salvage effort would bring an empire and pirates to Florida's Treasure Coast and culminate with the establishment of the Republic of Pirates in Nassau, New Providence; in the Bahama Islands.
This pirate "government" called themselves the "Flying Gang." Hornigold, Teach (Blackbeard), Calico Jack Rackham, Ann Bonny, and Mary Read to name a few, garnered enormous wealth, established their own codes and governed themselves independent of the colonial powers at the time. Like the colonial patriots, they were an iconic symbol of rebellion.
