The Grave Creek Mound Archaeology Complex will be showing a film about the pirate known as Blackbeard, but did you know that pirates also terrorized the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers? Find out more about these river pirates who attacked unsuspecting settlers that were heading down the river to destinations in the West during the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. Attendees will also get to participate in special family-oriented activities such as decorating a box to hold small treasures of your own. This event is free and open to the public.
