barbary pirates

Where were these pirates?Off the northern coast of Africa!The present-day areas of Morocco, Tripoli, and Algiers!

Arrgghh! Barbary Pirates!

1801 pirates demand more tribute! Jefferson says NO! EEKK! Tripoli declares war on USA!

Stephan Decatur becomes a naval hero when he burns the captured ship Philadelphia!

The pirates demanded tribute (protection money) - even the US paid! Cheaper than going to war!

How does it all end? US in 1805 has to pay $60,000 for US POW's...US tributes finally come to an end in 1815!

Sad ending for Decatur!
