Tale of the <em>Young Teazer</em>

The Young Teazer was a privateer during the war of 1812. This old privateer has many stories behind it, like the chase it went through.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned about the <em>Young Teazer</em> was the ghost stories. Many people have made up mini ghost stories about it and some claim they can still see the <em>Young Teazer</em> sailing in Mahone Bay.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that privateers played a big role in the War of 1812. Actually, the privateers were an American civilian navy that sourced their supplies from British ships.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

The people in the War of 1812 did not have the technology as we do today. They had canons, muskets and wooden boats with bronze bottoms.
