jun 5, 1692 - Rise of Thomas Tew

Description:

Thomas Tew is considered the first real Roundsman. He traveled from New York to Madagascar and plundered over 100 million dollars with little resistance. The governor of New York *Benjamin Fletcher) turned a blind eye for profit. However, pirates lose the Madagascar base in 1697 after encountering armed resistance from Arab and Indian ships.
