Jean Lafitte National Park, New Orleans: 8 reviews and 22 photos
Jean Lafitte was a notorious pirate, who raided Spanish shipping in the Gulf of Mexico about 200 years ago. During the War of 1812, the British tried to gain his support, but he turned them down. Later, he allied himself with the Americans, in return for a general pardon.
After the war, he went back to piracy. Shortly after that, he disappeared. No one knows exactly what became of him.
This Visitor's Center provides what information we have about him, and a lot about the early days of Louisiana.
