Whose birthday do I celebrate today?

March 8, 2017

Today is the birthdate of my blog namesake, Anne Bonney.  She was born Anne McCormac, or Cormac, in or around Cork, Ireland in 1702, or thereabouts.

Operating mainly in the Caribbean,  she is associated in her pirating exploits, with Calico Jack Rackham and Mary Read.  Possessed of red hair and a fiery temper, Anne was a strong and independent woman whose history may be sketchy, but who lives on in legend.
