Tuesday 11/24 Freelonga- Pirate Night

On Nov 24, 1818, Hippolyte Bouchard, an Argentinean pirate, occupied Monterey, claiming it for Argentina.  Monterey use to have a "pirate" milonga in November, but haven't in a couple of years. So we'll continue the tradition. Thanks to Andrea for suggesting the theme.

"Hippolyte de Bouchard, or Hipólito de Bouchard (January 15, 1780[citation needed], or 1783[1]– January 4, 1843), was a French and Argentine sailor and corsair who fought for Argentina, Chile, and Peru. During his first campaign as an Argentine corsair he attacked the Spanish colonies of Chile and Peru, under the command of the Argentine-Irish Admiral William Brown. He was the first Argentine to circumnavigate the world. During his voyage around the world he blockaded the port of Manila, recovered, in Hawaii, an Argentine privateer which had been seized by mutineers, occupied Monterey, California, raising the Argentine flag there and claiming for that country, for a short time, a small portion of the future State of California."
