The time is pre-1900. Commerce on the Great Lakes is young. These waterways are proving to be as wild and untamed as the Western Frontier. The law is all but absent in these nearly 100,000 square miles of open waters. This ambiguity spans the making of many a legendary pirate. Most of these marauders are long dead before they can be brought to the hangman’s noose. The most chronicled of these freewheeling buccaneers is the infamous Captain Dan Seavey. At nearly six foot six and we3ighing almost 300 pounds, this “larger-than-life character emerges. His many notorious escapes feeds the appetites of hungry journalists hanging on his every shenanigan. Being the only brigand in the history of the Great Lakes to be charged with piracy, Captain Seavey manages to beat the Federal Marshals at their own game.
