FLAG OF CARTAGENA: Lafitte's years as a Privateer expanded from 1805-1821. One of the "Letters of Marque" Lafitte held privateer commissions from was the Republic of Cartagena (in modern Colombia), This "Letter of Marque" authorized Lafitte to prey on Spanish commerce, illegally disposing of its plunder through merchant connections on the mainland. Lafitte was forced to turn to a life of Piracy when in 1821, the USS Enterprise was sent to Galveston to remove Lafitte from the Gulf. One of Lafitte's captains had attacked an American merchant ship. Lafitte agreed to leave the island without a fight, and on May 7, 1821, departed on his ship The Pride.
