      In both James Lafayette’s and Nathan Hale’s cases it was not until several decades after the Revolution that their folk legends expanded into popular culture. In the first half of the nineteenth century a surge in patriotism and interest in the Revolutionary War resulted in the publication of many remembrances of the period by aging. Jean Lafitte (c. – c. ) was a French pirate and privateer in the Gulf of Mexico in the early 19th century. He and his older brother Pierre spelled their last name Laffite, but English-language documents of the time used "Lafitte".This has become the common spelling in the United States, including places named after him. Lafitte is believed to have been born either in Basque-France.
