Jean Lafitte.




     Jean Lafitte was a French-American man that was born in  1780 , no one really knows the birth place they just know the year that he was born and the year that he died.He was a pirate and privateer.By 1805 he moved to New Orleans with his brother,he was lucky to be there before Hurricane Katrina hit,my mom and older sister aren't so lucky.He worked as a smuggler,he was smuggling ports so the people he worked for would get him a raise.He brought more and more so he could get paid more and more.They helped with the Mexican War of Independence.They helped the people fight against the Mexican.They would hurt people and they would make them suffer,they would steal their children and wives.After the war was over the people Jean and his elder brother worked for cut them lose and said,"We don't need ya now that we got these here ports!Hah aha!"And they left them.The brothers felt furious and angry with the men.They thought,"Man will they be executed when I become the king of England."They got their stuff and settled in a little house.They didn't earn much money at either jobs,they were lucky that the people that left had given them so much money."We should start a business."Jean's brother told him.They never started their business,but they did earn a bit more money then they use too,after they got new jobs.
