Generosity

Barbary pirates

How often before had they gathered here?  Before the mast, the whole crew assembled  ..  to witness a punishment.  A sailor stripped to the waist  ..  tied at the mast.
What were they thinking, his shipmates?  What were they seeing?  The captain saw a mutineer  ..  disobeying orders.  Mitchell saw himself a proud American sailor  .. fighting for his country.  Unwilling to give up the fight  ..  surrendering when he was beaten, not before.
And he wasn’t beaten.  Not yet.
