Join Luca Rebussini for a fascinating look into the history of the pirates and pirate hunters of New England during the Golden Age of Piracy. You’ll learn why people became pirates, how pirate ships were run, the weapons and tactics used, what it was really like to be a pirate, as well as how piracy ended. Welcome aboard as we discuss this hidden part of New England’s history!

Luca Rebussini is from Cranston, R.I. He teaches 6th grade social studies teacher at Jenks Middle School in Pawtucket, R.I. A 2016 and 2017 graduate of URI with bachelor’s degrees in history and secondary education respectively and a 2018 graduate of Western Governors University with a master’s degree in ESL, Luca began his pirate history speeches out of a combination of a love of history, passion for teaching, and the fun of learning about the remarkable stories of pirates.
