Episode Summary

EDIT
The Trial of Captain Kidd
AIRED:
Hot-tempered, ruthless, fiery, William Kidd was a respected sea-faring man. Later, in New York City, he was engaged by a group of British merchants to protect English merchant ships from pirates. But he took few prize vessels, there was mutiny aboard his ship, and in a brawl he killed the leader of the mutiny. At this point he turned pirate himseld, and made some large hauls. When he learned that criminal charges had been made against him, he returned to New York to clear himself. Kidd was transported back to England, in chains, placed on trial and in May 1701, hanged. There is considerable doubt that Kidd was given a fair trial, since his guilt would have implicated the highly placed men who originally hired him as a privateer.moreless
