Did You Know?


This episode takes place in three different settings: New Orleans, Louisiana on January 8, 1815, the Northwest Passage in 1803 and the Bahamas in 1798. See more »


During the course of the Battle of New Orleans at the end of the episode, almost every shot - 14 in all - of the British troops as they advance and begin to fight has a small bluish spot in the lower left corner, probably as the result of a tiny pit on the lens being used for long shots that day.

Phineas Bogg: One good thing about swamps, they're soft.
Jeffrey Jones: Yeah, and foggy. Just how it's supposed to be. Is this the right date?
Phineas Bogg: [opens the Omni] January 8th, 1815 and it's red.
Jeffrey Jones: Maybe it's not Lafitte. Let's find out what's going on.
Phineas Bogg: It's going to be Lafitte. I know it is.

In 1815 we took a little trip

This Voyagers story brings Bogg and Jeffrey to New Orleans and the Omni isn't the only thing red. British troops are occupying the city and Andrew Jackson has lost the battle of New Orleans because Jean Lafitte brother of prominent New Orleans baker Pierre Lafitte who got hanged for piracy back in 1798 in Nassau in the Bahamas.

Now we know what went wrong with history and it's off to Nassau and 1798 to prevent Jean Lafitte from being hanged. In order to do that they have to prevent him from being shanghaied on to George Innes ship.

Doing the shanghaing are a couple lovely pirate groupies played by Andra Akers and Tricia O'Neill. Lafitte is played by James Carroll Jordan. Akers and O'Neill are deadlier than the male.

Lance LeGault makes an impressive Old Hickory. I think some of the battle scenes might be from Yul Brynner's film The Buccaneer.

Along the way Lewis and Clark get some road directions west.

All in all a good day's work for The Voyagers.
