Loyalist or Continental Privateer?

Both sides had Merchant “Privateer” Mariners in their employ. Historical documents show more British or Loyalist privateers (2,500+) entered the war, but the Continentals (1,697+) persevered. We are endeavoring to piece together what life was like for both sides of the war.

Pirate or Privateersman?

Is there a difference?  Yes… Depending upon what side you are on, your interpretation of the rules of engagement, and whether or not you have a Letter Of Marque.   Not all Pirates were Privateers, BUT all Privateers were Pirates. Many factors made that determination. For some the lines were clear, others not so much.
