Today we're bringing you a French, and maybe Jewish, pirate who got into all sorts of shenanigans down in the Gulf of Mexico. Jean Lafitte was crazy successful at what he did, and all without being nearly as brutal as other successful pirates. In fact, he was actually a pretty good dude, with a patriotic side that led to him taking a break from piracy to play a significant role in a pretty huge moment in American history. Enjoy!
