After Claiborne took office, one of his aims quickly became to upscale the city's educational & cultural values, both, he felt, left wanting. With support from the Louisiana Territory Legislature, he was able to construct the College d'Orleans, forerunner of today's University of New Orleans. His efforts also produced two playhouses, the Phillip Street Theatre, which presented popular dramas & farces, & the Theatre d'Orleans, an opera house, on the Rue de Bourbon. Jean Lafitte was a charismatic presence in New Orleans. A central element to the town's industry, the politicians admired him, the shopkeepers & saloonkeepers flattered him, the artisans exulted him,. Everyone knew him, the highlife & the lowlife. Even the flatboatsmen who towed their crafts into New Orleans from hundreds of miles upstream knew him. From his blacksmith shop "front" to Maspero's Exchange to "Pirate's Alley" to the French Market to the wharves, his figure cut into the scene like the rapier he wore; he incited whispering gossip & intrigue. Lafitte embodied the notion of the "man born in the right place at the right time". He didn't move around the city. In essence, the city moved around him.

Arrrgghh....as ye can see Captain Lafitte had his finger on the pulse of New Orleans while Governor Claibourne had a way of kicking it in the shins! It was goin' to take a lot of charmin' to get the people to come around to Claibourne's way of thinkin'. I tell ye more about Jean Lafitte tomorrow. Please donate a vote to this worthless pirate! Thanky kindly! Garrrr....would ye like to share some saltwater taffy?
