Product Description
The forgotten war that changed American history - that is what this conflict has been called. After George Washington left office, one of the few pieces of advice we, as a nation, actually listened to was regarding the involvement of the US in foreign affairs - and how he advised against it. But what were we supposed to do when pirates were attacking merchant ships holding goods necessary to the survival of our economy? This 10 minute YouTube video explains how our country reacted, as well as how that reaction has shaped how the US deals with pirates on the seas today.
