[STC0027] It is well knowledge that Captain Kidd sailed the seven seas in search of buried wealth, and his name has become almost synonymous with the concept of the swashbuckling pirate.
The legend goes that in the year 1695, Captain William Kidd received a royal commission that authorized him to represent Great Britain at sea and hunt down and kill hostile pirates.
Kidd’s attempts to complete his authorized mission were fruitless, so he decided to turn to piracy instead.
In the year 1699, he was indicted on charges of piracy as well as the murder of his gunner, William Moore.
Before proceeding to present his case to the colonial governor of New York, the pirate made landfall on Gardiners Island, which is located in the waters off the shore of Long Island.
In spite of the fact that Captain Kidd was executed for his crimes, the tale of his life has become legendary for its mystery, intrigue, and hidden wealth.
Following his passing, the Gardiner family’s hidden treasures, which included chests of gold and silver, were soon retrieved, and there have been no further discoveries of hidden wealth.
