Learn about this forgotten war that changed American history. Discover how our newly independent nation was challenged by four Muslim powers and what happened when America's third President decided to stand up to intimidation.
The First Barbary War (1801–1805), also known as the Tripolitanian War and the Barbary Coast War, was the first of two wars between the United States and the four North African states known collectively as the “Barbary States” (Tripoli, Algiers, Tunis, and Sultanate of Morocco). The cause of the war was pirates from the Barbary States seizing American merchant ships and holding the crews for ransom, demanding the U.S. pay tribute to the Barbary rulers. United States President Thomas Jefferson refused to pay this tribute.
Few today remember these men and other heroes who inspired the Marine Corps hymn: “From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli.” Join Professor Lissa Brassfield for this historical tale of danger, intrigue, and drama!
