"There were nunneries in Italy and Spain that specialized in their own cookies. A lot of them you can still find in those nunneries today. Lizzie says it was probably in Catalunya in Spain that they started whipping eggs into cookie dough. People were really going to town these new foods were so exciting and adaptable. And gradually, they spread northwood through Europe and reached Britain, which is my original homeland and the modern biscuits too. And so biscuits enter England in a kind of medicinal manual. It's got a lovely title. It's called the secrets of Alexis of pimenton and it has recipes for creams against the stench of your toes and how to make gold. Find gold with salamanders and things like that. It's an incredible book, but it also has a recipe for more statue, which if you make it, turns out these hard brown biscuits. The biscuit was still in this strange gray zone between medicine and dessert, and it was of course mostly for the elite who could afford both sugar and spices. But no elite banquet was really complete without a biscuit or two served at the end. You might dip them in your creams and things like that or dip them in sweet wine. Remember, these are not the crumbly or soft squidgy biscuits we know and love today. These are twice baked jawbreakers. When I was doing the book, I tried out lots of 17th century biscuit recipes. Many of them were utterly disastrous. Especially the ones with coriander seeds in there were really revolting, but then Lizzie tried out a British recipe for a particular type of hard biscuit that would have been served at funerals along with wine. And they are delicious if you dip them in sherry, I have to say that has become a new habit of mine. Hashtag best life. But the biscuit itself still had miles to go. Literally. With the ship's biscuits, obviously that's key to exploration. We mentioned that biscuits were important for sailors, but they were truly essential during the age of exploration in the 1400s and onwards, those European explorers could not have survived their journeys without a storable, durable carb. So biscuits enable exploration and long ocean voyages. The British navy relied on biscuits. And you know, you have all these lovely descriptions of how disgusting they were. Even though biscuits were super durable, if they were stored in a really humid environment like on a ship, they'd start to soften, and then they'd get moldy, and little beetles called weevils that love flour would start multiplying fruitfully. This lovely description of banks before the captains table eat their biscuits. They put them in an oven, and so that encourages all the weavers to crawl out of the biscuits, but the poor old sailors had to eat them with the wave or still in they tasted kind of bitter and like really disgusting or they'd have maggots and they tasted like cold blancs..

"The british navy in its own right was increasingly powerful penalties for working with pirates became a much bigger deterrent and the risk simply was becoming too much. This would lead to a general decline in the practice. This is not to say however that the conditions that created piracy simply vanished though less common the use of privateers to supplement. The navy continued to be common practice. That united states relied on the practice through the american civil war in europe. The use of privateers would continue until the eighteen fifty six treaty of paris. Eight treaty that the united states declined to sign non european nations still commonly used merchant ships in conflict so in that regard privateer does still exist though it is far less common than it was during the eighteenth century as has always been the case. There still exists a very fine line between privateer and piracy as we wrap up today's episode. I want to take a second to just making note on the sources that i'm using in writing this podcast. I make use of a variety of different sources. I use everything from extremely broad textbook style. Sources they cover huge amounts of time to secondary sources focused on very particular events in moments. I used primary texts as political writings. Journal articles and more every single episode is pulled together through multiple sources as i do my best to ensure that i'm providing you good an accurate accounts of events. If you ever find yourself wondering what. Sources i draw from. I do keep a running source list on my website. That will give you just that information. If a particular topic interests you go check out what. I used to write the episode and diving deeper this week. For example i relied heavily on pirates of the chesapeake bay. An absolutely fantastic book by historian jamie good all if you want to know more about piracy in the era. Pick up her book. You won't be disappointed. I will include a link to the website in today's show. Notes that way you can pop over to the website. Nc just what it is. I'm using to tell the story next time. We are going to dive. Headlong into queens war. The colonies are about to be swept up in a war between the english. The french and the spanish until then. I hope you all have a wonderful two weeks.

Most pirates didn't know how to swim. Earrings will pirates were golden. They really did. Because they were fashionable but also in the belief that they gave them better iside protected them from Trimdon. Pirates often wore feathers in their hats. For superstitious reasons they were thought to protect sailors from shipwrecks especially the feathers of the wren slaughtered on New Year's Day which held its power.

Dad Luck repairing flags on the quarter deck was sure. Bring bad luck. You never stepped on the ship with your left foot always with the ride.

"Here's how it came about in eighteen sixty five in american ship called errands who e r i n as was intercepted by the british navy on the weed ireland the ship was loaded with soldiers and ammunition down for this plan finian revolts the mission failed andy finian branch in america held an emergency convention in philadelphia a guy named william randall roberts who is a radical firebrand was elected president of the finian's and he said let's invade the british north american colonies of canada and they thought this was maybe not a good idea they thought it was something they could pull off they thought it was possible implausible 'cause even that i mean the canadians probably have the same reputation they have now is being pretty chill agreeable folks i it's interesting because the finian's already had some support politically in the u s in the government didn't really mess with their meetings are gatherings and stuff and canada's borders were virtually unsecured dealing guards they had were citizen volunteers so all these veterans who have military experience an are armed because they were able to get this i did notice after the civil war and they were able to purchase their rifles and ammo at a super deep discount like hey congratulations on surviving this usually cost you know twenty dollars but will give it to you for to just because of like as a as a reward almost with their service congratulations relations you are alive here's a deep discounts for you let's say on better than nothing like i know the next thing you want is another another guy in more stuff to do that's right and more and more people they kill and protect yourself from from being killed by but you know if there's anyone i wanna do that with it would be the canadians but that could be entirely incorrect that reputation could be absolutely m f fabrication and canadians could actually be bloodthirsty killers but we don't really have that a confirmation hearing the story oh well we do know is that v idea for the invasion or the seeds were planted as far back as eighteen sixty five when v finian's in the u s a split up into two factions one was headed by william roberts other by guy named john oh mahoney who is eight member of one of the founding members of liberalism right envy roberts wing is actually the one that suggested doing this invasion of canada and here are some of these supporting details that they put forth as a justification for this plan they pointed to the fact if there were hundreds of thousands of these battle hardened veterans a that could support this invasion and if they did it in time did in the right way it could bring about eight real revolution in ireland if they controlled canada would also force the british government to be engaged in two different wars separated by ocean which logistically is incredibly expensive and eventually they realize that that rebellion they were hoping for the revolution they were hoping for an ireland was not actually going to take place regain the momentum they wanted to gain they kept with the idea invasion but the goal change instead they said let's make sure we engineer a border incident between u s in britain that will force them into eight another war and you know it's it's it's no secret at this point the u s and britain are still very sore at one another a the british empire heavily favored z confederacy during the civil war which is ale a fact that many people aren't aware of a during the war in fact be british government owned most granted diplomatic recognition to the confederacy and this kind of a tense uncool vibe between u s in the brits was probably not gonna leads to another fullscale war but it did mean that the usa government was certainly not gonna go out of its way to assist british forces in canada is a matter of fact we have we we have solid proof the president andrew johnson was aware of the finian's plan for this irish invasion of canada but he really do anything to stop it you is kind of like gene wilder playing willy wonka in a v original ling good adaptation tation charlie and chocolate factory where he says no stop please yeah it's true so let's go a little deeper into what v u s his role in this whole thing was yeah why were they okay with all of this to like you said before i mean andrew johnson was clearly more less okay with letting the finian brother kind of poke britain in i but he actually had some more strategic kind of long term things to gain here a u was really deep in this idea of manifest destiny of expanding their territorial holdings to the west end v government actually participated in this plan rebellion johnson met with some of the leaders of the finian's ends a and helped get them discounts on weapons and they they sold to them and he gave them his backing witty understanding that f b irish did take over canada they would sort of be in league with united states states that would be better than having a territory bordering are country was controlled by the british while we were tasked with at the time were not you know fast friends there's a lot of like simmering resentments held over from obviously the revolutionary war right an end even during the civil war at the time johnson is pressing the british government to pay reparations for different damages incurred during the civil war for what she feels they're responsible and we've still okay back to our two competing finian factions this is the finian faction fact check i got through that all right so the unser thank you sir thank you a suit these two different factions launched two different operations in april of eighteen sixty six over mahoney wing tries to season island near new brunswick but the uss navy oddly enough dispersed system they gathered in maine but they were disbanded under these guys watchful u s troops no one in the federal government was super stoked about raining in these finian's because they thought that they might lose be irish vote which is a huge voting block right so as a result the scenes were able to organize eight much larger campaign leader these other wing the roberts wing launched its attack on canada under the command of a civil war veteran on june the first eighteen sixty six general and you'll let a force of over one thousand men into canadian territory near fort eerie in ontario an initially they had some some pretty good success they won two battles including deep battle of ridgway and they only had about ten people die on their side same number of people dead around the same number dead on the canadian side but what was the what was the battle of ridgway and wife swimming dinner notes here we have it listed as these so called battle of ridgway it's just too small to be a battle or what was it so this conflict has had several names there is that the battle of lime ridge or limestone ridge and of course the battle of ridgway 'em and this began this conflict on the morning of june the second nineteen sixty six is near a village called ridgway and also eight town in canada called fort eerie which is now ontario and there were eight hundred canadian soldiers and they faced off against around the same number a little less actually finian's eight hundred seven fifty eight hundred finian's who had crossed v niagara river from buffalo new york and it's interesting because historically this is a significant thing for canada because it's the first battle of the industrial age that was fought entirely by canadians in lead exclusively by canadian troops could they were typically part of a british offensive right it's a good point this also the last battle fought in ontario against foreign invasion force in in nineteen twenty one it became a national historic site this episode of ridiculous history is brought to you by the vitamin shoppe it's often said every journey needs a compass and that's what the vitamin shoppe is it's.

"Think about yourself caring that much extra weight or something more proportional to the human body around with you just in sheer, you know, essentially, parasite, wait. So this could be like over a hundred cars worth of barnacles. Yeah. That is crazy to think about I mean, look at it this way, a really large vessel may have an acre or more of space for barnacles. If you just imagine it just folded out flat yield of barnacles the unsuccessful sequel field of dreams. Yes. And she in imagine this sort of accumulation can impact the effectiveness of of a vessel. It increases the frictional resistance requiring from. One fifth to one third more fuel to operate and reducing speed by one fourth to one third of its optimal like debar knuckled speed and then on top of this, especially by modern estimates. It can reduce the fuel economy of a vessel by up to forty percent. And this increases co two emissions, right? So they're all these additional effects. It spill off from just having to drag all these extra organisms around with you. Now that you've been describing all this the barnacle base torture method idea starts to make a lot more sense. Oh, you're talking about keel hauling. Yeah. I don't know much about it what? But I know it involves barnacles. So, you know, we I feel like maybe we'd have to hand it off probably to like ridiculous history for them to proper history of -culing because it's one of these things that is that that everyone pretty pretty much agreed with barbaric. But here's the basic idea, you take a pirate or sailor whoever's on board that you're displeased with. When is this something pirates would do? There are accounts of pirates doing it. And there are count there. Also accounts. Of of it happening on naval vessels. But it, you know. It was long seen as just a bar. Barrick thing that that was frowned upon and many different naval traditions or other places considered it a viable punishment. But the ideas that you would you would rope. Somebody up throw them over the front of the vessel. And then they would be dragged banged under the whole. And then come up on the other side, come up in the back of the vessel. And of course, the whole is covered in the yield barnacle. So although the shell scraping into your body lacerating you on top of you, just, you know, slamming into the whole the ship that alone could be enough to kill you. And then of course, the the drowning risk the the cold waters in many cases. So as a pr- pretty grotesque thing to do to somebody. But it certainly becomes more grotesque when you consider acres of barnacles that is awful. Now, we mentioned earlier ancient sailors, dealing with the problem of barnacles and coming up with solutions one particularly effective solution. Was copper. Oh, copper. I mean coppers metal. We had access to for a long time. Even before we had bronze. We had copper. Yeah. So you saw the the ancient Greeks and the Romans, for instance, using copper nails on the whole of their vessels later in the eighteenth century, the British navy sheaf, it's wooden holes and copper. In part to deal with the barnacles, but also to dealership worms, which will we'll touch on later. They probably wondering why copper? Why does copper you know, because just is not that it's a metal alone because we have steel hulls. It's still become covered with barnacles. Well, the reason is because in the water a toxic film forms on copper that repels barnacle larvae. And this is even been cited as a potential factor in the the superiority of the British navy at the time, they had the the copper-plated holes. And so the the ships would just that much more efficient than all the competing vessels. Because they they they had a just far fewer literal hangers on on the hulls. Now, do you know if they were coated in copper specifically for this reason intentionally or was that just a happy accident? Now, it was it was to deal with barnacles and ship-worm. Okay. Yeah. But of course, the age of the wooden warship came to an end in favor of steel, and in this you end up losing your copper advantage. Now, you can use copper lace. Paints, but these particles Leach out and in doing so the end up hurting vulnerable organisms that aren't attaching to your whole like salmon and always tres, meanwhile, depleting the pain of its protective power. So you end up having to deal with the barnacles again..
