Privateer
A privateer is a private person or ship that engages in maritime warfare under a commission of war.[1] The commission, also known as a letter of marque, empowers the person to carry on all forms of hostility permissible at sea by the usages of war, including attacking foreign vessels during wartime and taking them as prizes. Historically captured ships were subject to condemnation and sale under prize law, with the proceeds divided between the privateer sponsors, shipowners, captains and crew. A percentage share usually went to the issuer of the commission. Since robbery under arms was once common to seaborne trade, all merchant ships were already armed. During war, naval resources were auxiliary to operations on land so privateering was a way of subsidizing state power by mobilizing armed ships and sailors. In practice the legality and status of privateers historically has often been vague

Lake Rossignol
Lake Rossignol is the largest freshwater lake in Nova Scotia, Canada.[1] It is located in the south-western area of the province.Contents1 History 2 Geography 3 Tourism 4 See also 5 References 6 External linksHistory[edit] A reservoir, it was created in 1929 when the Bowater Mersey Paper Company Limited dammed the Mersey River at Indian Gardens to generate electricity for a pulp mill 30 km (19 mi) downstream in Brooklyn.[citation needed] Geography[edit] The size of the lake can allow strong winds to build up which, combined with numerous submerged trees and rocks and a variable water level (due to fluctuations in water demand at the dam), can make Rossignol extremely dangerous for canoes and even small boats. Due to the remoteness of this area, cellular phone service can be unreliable.[citation needed] Tourism[edit] Several canoe guides are available that cover Rossignol and the surrounding area
