    History check: Mary Read survived this cutlass battle (if it ever actually happened) because she died in prison in 1721. Moreover, she looks WAY too feminine in this painting; Read spent much of her career disguised as a man. She was apparently quite good at it, having served for years in the British army before becoming a pirate.

    As a matter of fact, she only “came out of the closet,” so to speak, when she joined pirate John “Calico Jack” Rackham and his companion, the (other) female pirate Anne Bonny. According to Wikipedia, “Nobody knew that Read was female until Bonny began to take a liking to Read thinking she was a handsome young fellow.” Yeesh.

    Read more about what happened to her at: and, if you go there, take a look at the depiction of Mary Read on that page and compare it to this painting. Heh. 🙂
