Ocracoke Island sits in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Like much of the Outer Banks, Ocracoke Island is difficult to navigate. Shifting sandbars can disable ships in a matter of minutes, and fierce currents and storms in the Atlantic Ocean have led to many shipwrecks. For these reasons, Ocracoke Island was a popular place for pirates in the 17th and 18th century. In fact, the most famous pirate, Blackbeard, died here at Ocracoke in 1718.
