    The Museum of the Waxhaws is focused on the history of an area known as the Waxhaws. Andrew Jackson the seventh President, who was born in the area. During the War of 1812 General Jackson lead a motley assortment of militia fighters, frontiersmen, slaves, Indians and even pirates. The group weathered a frontal assault by a superior British force, inflicting devastating casualties on the British.

    The pirate Jackson partnered with was the French-born pirate Jean Lafitte. Courted by the British, Lafitte instead offered his services and weapons to Jackson in return for pardons for some of his men arrested by the United States. The Baratarian pirates composed only a small percentage of the American forces on January 8, but their experience manning cannons on privateering ships proved valuable along the artillery batteries. Lafitte was hailed as a hero in the war’s aftermath.
