Jean Lafitte.

I learned about Jean Lafitte. He and his brother were French pirates— they smuggled and pirated. Later on Jean helped the Americans win the War of 1812, the Battle of New Orleans. His death is a mystery and no one really knows what happened at the end of his life exactly. I visited his area and earned a Junior Ranger badge in the French Quarter and then again at the Chalmette Battlefield.
