He is the founder of New Orleans and several forts and trading post along the Red River. He stated in a diary that he built a fort/trading post in the Spanish Fort area of North Texas. He died without the honor due him by king and nation however, New Orleans did much latter erect a stature in honor of the "father of New Orleans."
