Intrepid Sailors: The Legacy of Preble’s Boys and the Tripoli Campaign

Journalist and historian Chipp Reid discusses one of the greatest sea stories in the history of the U.S Navy. Under Commodore Edward Preble, the Navy came of age fighting the scourge of the time, the infamous Barbary Pirates, who had declared war on the United States in 1801. The exploits of the officers and sailors in this campaign are the stuff of legend. A book signing will follow the program.
