In 1711, Pirates stormed Mobile Bay and attacked Dauphin Island, which after that was known as Massacre Island, because of the huge pile of human skeletons that were discovered by Pierre Le Moyne. Come and see the Pirates as they pilfer and pillage Isle Dauphine and fight against Spanish and British Galleons. Who knows, you may even find a pirate’s treasure.
