Just mentioning Ocracoke Island, part of North Carolina's Cape Hatteras National Seashore, conjures up a rich history of shipwrecks and buccaneer treachery. The tales of Edward Teach would fill a chapter of this coastal island's history book. Teach, the infamous Blackbeard, was feared by all that sailed the seas. Known to be "kin to the devil", Teach spent his final years at Ocracoke at what is now known as Teach's Hole.
