"Journal of Jean Laffite"
comments powered by
For those interested in the story of Jean Laffite [sic] the privateer, I would suggest a "google.com" search under the term "Journal of Jean Laffite" (NOTE THE SPELLING OF THE LAST NAME).
In the past, the "journal" has been called a fraud, but I am not ready to dismiss it as such.
Over the years, *Genealogie et Histoire du Caraibe* (GHC) has published interesting notes (in French) by various people in France and elsewhere investigating this famous LAFFITE.GHC is on the web.
I think that a discussion of the "Journal" would be an interesting topic of discussion here (eventhough the name is spelled slightly different).
