caption: Another interesting piece by Frank Schoonover, this one dating from 1921 and entitled A Yankee Ship in Pirate Waters. An American seaman appears to be under attack from native pirates in Caribbean or Far Eastern waters and is using the butt of his pistol as a club during the close fighting on the deck of his ship. In the early nineteenth century the Caribbean became particularly dangerous and anarchic with thousands of attacks being carried out on merchant ships without provocation as revolutions spread through the region.
