ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Sir Henry Morgan, an English buccaneer for governor of Jamaica, and his breakout in Maracaibo, Venezuela. He joined an expedition to the New World in 1654 led by General Robert Venables and Vice Admiral William Penn. He worked hard to make a name for himself by conducting several raids which include the raid on Portabelo in 1668. Spanish Vice Admiral Don Alonso del Campo y Espinosa attempted to counter the attack that Morgan was planning. He was recalled for his raid on Panama in 1671.
