Apparently Blackbeards favourite drink was rum and gunpowder. Was gunpowder regularly consumed in the past, was it dangerous, did it add flavour? Is it still used today in food / drink?
I just realized that I have no idea how naval combat occurred before the advent of gunpowder. How did these battles occur, and how did tactics evolve over time (e.g. from ancient Greece, to Rome, to Medieval Europe...)
