About the Book

Buried Treasures, The Age of Manifest Destiny is a story that begins with the expansion of Spanish power and the invasion of Hispaniola in 1492 - and on through the occupation of North America, South America, Central America, Mexico, and Cuba by the Republic of Spain who wanted power and would use any means to obtain it, in order to rule the world. Then, on a smaller scale at the beginning of the 19th century, the new Americans believed that it was their destiny to spread its borders to include the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans in their quest for Manifest Destiny. All believing that their social worth was superior.     

The story then takes us through the Hatian Revolution, the Louisiana Purchase, the Battle of New Orleans, the rescue of Napoleon from St. Helena, and finally to the burial of the privateer Jean Lafitte. However, that is not the end of our story. Lafitte’s legacy lived on, in his beautiful young daughter, Angelique.
