When Morgan did return, Modyford had already received letters from the King of England warning him to force all of the pirates to return to port. Modyford chose to neglect these warnings and continue to issue letters of marque under the guise that it was for the King’s best interest to protect Jamaica, and this was a necessary element in that goal. Because Modyford desired to get rid of the Dutch presence in the Caribbean he issued a to Captain Edward Mansvelt to assemble a fleet of fifteen ships which was manned by roughly 500-600 men. Having just returned from a successful expedition of the Mexican Coast, where he captured several ships off of the coast of Campeche, Morgan was appointed vice admiral of the fleet. Mansvelt was given orders to attack the settlement of Curaçao, but once the crew was out at sea it was decided that Curaçao was not lucrative enough for the impending danger associated with attacking it. With this in mind, a vote was taken and the crew decided that attacking a different settlement would be a safer and more lucrative alternative. Unhappy with this decision, many of the buccaneers deserted the expedition and headed back to port while others continued on with Admiral Mansvelt and Vice-Admiral Morgan to attack the Spanish island of Providence.

Sir Henry Morgan Welsh Buccaneer

1992 TV movie starring Robert Urich and Ali MacGraw. Based on Dougal Robertson's book, which told the true story of his family's ordeal off the coast of Central America in 1972. It's a good picture, and tells a harrowing story, but I've had a hard time liking it. It's just so irritating to me that Hollywood will take an exciting, true story, with an emotional and enlightening moral ending, and make so damn many changes to it.
