A portrait of the pirate savior of New Orleans beautifully rendered on slate. Jean Lafitte and his brother Pierre were the premiere smugglers of the Gulf of Mexico, operating from the brothers’ blacksmith shop on Bourbon Street (pictured in the background). One of the oldest buildings in the French Quarter, it is currently the oldest structure in the United States housing a bar. Lafitte’s past crimes were forgiven once he and his pirate fleet came to the aid of General Andrew Jackson during the Battle of New Orleans, successfully defending the city from the British invasion. A stoic depiction of one of the greatest and most beloved men in New Orleans history!
