|Battles||Attack on the True North|
The Colonial Dawn is a pirate ship captained by Jack Rackham.
The Colonial Dawn was first mentioned by Benjamin Hornigold as owing him a favor by aiding him in retaking the fort. The crew agrees to contribute men to the assault, but it is called off.
The crew becomes deeply divided due to the feud between Captain Flint and Charles Vane. Featherstone, the navigator, believes that 28 men from the crew will join him in electing a new captain. Afterwards, thanks to the machinations of Max and Idelle, with whom Featherstone is deeply enamored, Jack Rackham becomes captain of the Colonial Dawn. He leads them in taking the True North and defeated Linus Harcourt in a dispute over the plunder from the prize.
After hearing that the Urca de Lima gold is still unclaimed, Jack plans on leading his crew in claiming it. John Silver covertly tells them the location, while telling Flint that the gold was reclaimed by the Spanish. In truth, the Spanish soldiers guarding the gold have largely died of a plague.
At least two crewmen, Stayton and Atz, are killed by Eleanor Guthrie's hired assassins who attempted to hinder the Urca excursion. The crew succeeded in taking the gold, and guarded the treasure in the vaults of the fort.
The gold remains in possession of the crew. They are allowed to withdraw gold from their respective shares.
The crew voted to expel Charles Vane from the fort in fear of being besieged and hoping that the British would allow them to keep the gold and remain in the fort.
After Rackham blows a hole in the fort's walls, allowing him, Bonny and Vane to escape, the crew surrenders to Hornigold's men. They presmably take the Royal Pardon after that.
