History Mondays Aboard the Schooner Woodwind Oysters and the Oyster Wars

Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay are a hot commodity-sometimes called "black gold." An industry that supplied half of the world's oysters in the 1880's, Chesapeake Bay oyster beds have been the subject of violent-and sometimes deadly-disputes between oyster pirates, legal watermen, and authorities from 1860 to 1960. Smith Island native, Sherri Marsh Johns, relates the fascinating history, battles, and lifestyle surrounding the unassuming, non-mobile, bi-valve, which may be the key to a healthy bay.
