LIVERPOOL PRIVATEER DAYS
DATE: June 21st to June 23rd 2013
LOCATION: Liverpool Nova Scotia
An event that pays tribute to our Privateering past while never losing its sense of fun.
Privateers were privately owned ships that were authorized by government to raid ships from other countries—a form of legalized piracy on the high seas. The men who served aboard these ships were referred to as "privateers."
Liverpool quickly emerged as one of British North America's leading privateering ports, eventually deploying more privateer vessels than even the much larger city of Halifax. Ships like the Lucy, the Rover, and the Liverpool Packet gained international renown for their workmanship and speed, and the prowess of their crews inspired respect and fear.
