"They were a mighty fine gang of fighting men! The Butcher's Bill has been paid in full!"
It was slang according to pyratical lore that the term for the littered wounded and dead on deck after a battle was coined "The Butcher's Bill."
We paired this slang with our drawing of the mighty and feared Captain Edward Teach, otherwise known as the infamous BLACK BEARD! Lore has it that this foul mouthed, brazen, giant of a man set fire to slow burning fuses on his hat in battle and wore colored ribbons in his pigtails. In charge of the forty-gun Queen Ann's Revenge he operated out of Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is claimed that this devil of a man and his crews took 23 ships in 7 months... VISIT OUR "DEFIANCE 76" BLOG TO READ BLACK BEARD'S TALE!

On the back collar is a line drawing of a coffin with a skull and cross bones and the pyratical term of "The Butcher's Bill has been paid in full." Sleeve art is the collection label of a pirate sloop out running a black squall swelling up in the distance.
