497. We interview Ashley Oliphant and Beth Yarbrough about the book they wrote, Jean Laffite Revealed: Unraveling One of America’s Longest-Running Mysteries. The book "takes a fresh look at the various myths and legends surrounding one of the last great pirates. Beginning in 1805, the book traces Laffite through his rise to power as a privateer and smuggler in the Gulf, his involvement in the Battle of New Orleans, his flight to Texas, and his eventual disappearance in the waters of the Caribbean. With stunning revelations, this book picks up the trail from there—a trail that no one knew existed until now. This carefully researched work is a bona fide wild ride that will silence long-held speculation about Laffite's ultimate fate" (ULL Press).
  1. This week in Louisiana history. November 27 1813 Jean Lafitte offers $1,500 reward for the capture of Gov. W.C.C. Clairborne.
  2. This week in New Orleans history. To raise the money to re-publish a new, updated edition of My Awakening, David Duke instigated a 21-day fundraising drive on November 26, 2007 where he had to raise "$25,344 by a December 17 deadline for the printers." Duke stated that this drive was necessary because the work "has become the most important book in the entire world in the effort to awaken our people for our heritage and freedom."
