Finding inspiration while on vacation

Updated: Jun 15, 2018

I was visiting Galveston Texas which long ago was home of the infamous pirate Jean Lafitte.

Jean and his brother Pierre settled in Galveston and built a empire. The pirates raided British and Spanish ships. The amazing thing is Jean ends up to be a hero in the War of 1812. He unites with General Jackson to battle the British and saved New Orleans.

Jean Lafitte leaves a legend and mystery behind him. He is told to give up his empire by America. Jean leaves his empire never to be seen again. Legend says he died on the seas. Others talk about him living under another name. No one knows for sure but that makes the mystery so cool.
