"Exasperated, Claiborne posted a $500 reward for anyone who would capture Lafitte. New Orleans snickered the next day when posters appeared saying Lafitte offered $1,500 for Claiborne's capture.".
"I think that Lafitte put a price on Claiborne's head after territorial Governor Claiborne put a bounty on Jean Lafitte."
You were right.
