Who was Calico Jack?
Calico Jack otherwise known as John Rackham was a
pirate that many associated with Anne Bonny and Mary Read. Anne and Mary are the
best-known female pirates in the entire world. Calico Jack received his nickname
from his preference for wearing calico britches and coats.
John Rackham was under the command of Captain Vane;
however, he was not what many called a captain and when he did not attack a
French man-of-war. John protested the loudest and the vote came down from the
crew that put Vane out of command and John Rackham in command of the Treasure.
Vane was placed on a smaller sloop along with any of the crew that voted against
John Rackham at a later date gave the Treasure over
to Anne Bonny and Mary Read. He took Anne Bonny away with him willingly from her
husband. Anne and John Rackham fought side by side through various battles.
In November of 1720, John Rackham’s ship was
captured and taken to Jamaica. Most of the crew Rackham included was sentenced
to death by hanging.
