    Elliot Key, Black Caesar Pirate Silver

    I've heard stories of the pirate Black Caesar burying treasure around Elliot Key, Florida. Anyone know anything more on the subject?

    Was it a documentary or a fictional type show like Blacksails?

    The legend is well established but there is doubt that ‘Black Caesar’ as described therein ever actually existed. Wiki does as good a job as any in detailing the legend, together with the story that he buried a large amount of treasure on Elliott Key:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Caesar_(pirate)

    Regarding whether or not the legend is true, Devin Leigh provides an excellent summary in “Ghost of the Gallows: The Historical Record of Black Caesar” at the link below:

    https://depaul.digication.com/Devinl...cal_figure_nam

    His conclusion is that “Historical analysis of the available primary-source documentation from the lifetime of “Caesars” has revealed extreme incongruity between the historical record and the modern-day legend, suggesting that once people believed that “Caesar” was the “[redacted term] whom Blackbeard had brought up,” it became necessary to account for that upbringing with an origin story that entirely ignored the limits of primary-source documentation…”
