Things I haven’t learned, yet

Precisely WHAT was smuggled during the embargo/non-intercourse act years, as well as the war of 1812, at least in the American SE. (In the NE, it was food, cows, and potash.)

I did learn that it’s highly likely that Tristan would have had to travel to Spain, sail across the Atlantic to Florida, and then from Florida to Louisiana, thanks to the whole ‘No French Ships’ thing.
