About this title


Excerpt from Conquest and Self-Conquest, or Which Makes the Hero?
It was September, 1811. The good ship had experienced some very severe weather, and, having entered the harbour of New Orleans, lay safely moored near the shore. The weather was sultry, and it was not till evening that any who had not a home or friends within the city felt disposed to leave the ship. But the cool night-breeze brought new energy on its wings, and all not immediately on duty began to think how they might most pleasantly spend an even ing on shore. In such a consultation the opinion of no other was so much regarded as that of George Fulton, the oldest midshipman onboard, for he had been in New Orleans, and knew all its varied places of amusement.
Poh, poh said young Fulton to those who had proposed a stroll through the city or a visit to its theatres; I will show you the place to enjoy yourselves, and make money besides.
