Talk:William Augustus Bowles

This guy is shrouded in legend and misinformation, due to the pirate festival. I tried to cobble together an article from various online sources, but quickly realized I was in over my head. The "Billy Bowlegs" described by FWB folks seems to be a composite of Bowles and another pirate named William Rogers. (See here.) If anyone else wants to research this more thoroughly, be my guest, otherwise I'll try to sort it all out later. --Admin 08:24, 3 June 2007 (CDT)
