Al Chewning, of Histories and Haunts LLC, recently presented a program on pirates during the Summer Reading Program at the Courtland branch of the Blackwater Regional Library.

A library news release stated that attendees learned about the life and times of a pirate, pirate talk, stories and songs.

As noted at HistoriesandHaunts.com, in 2003, after 27 years in the Virginia Beach Fire Department, Chewning started Histories and Haunts LLC as a way to share his love of history and his interest in the paranormal. He has created a unique, first-person educational experience that brings living history into the classroom, and in his personas, he uses museum-quality reproduction items to enhance his presentations.
