Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates

Review:

I love American history: the good, the bad and the total ugly! Now I have found kids are not taught most of it. When my daughter was in high school she never learn, amount many historical facts, who Alexander Hamliton was and the great part he played in starting this nation, ty United States of America. She is now forty so I fear this lack of teaching Ameican history, the Good, the BAD and the truth of both, have not be taught to a few generations.

Barbary States of North African practiced piracy for money. U.S. merchant ships were being boarded and raided by these pirates for personal gain. The young nation was near impoverous do to debts incurred from their war of independance for Great Britain. And up to this point, before the war of Independences, the United States had been under the British flag and British paid the bribes to the Tripoli/Barbary countries.

 

This history account shows how appeasement does not work. Some enemies only understand strength. This book is a timely account about USA history and how strength is needed to face enemies who hate our freedom and would take it from us. This fact-based history book gives a great overview of a war most Americans don’t remember or have not been taught at all.  ~JD
