The 210th Anniversary Of The End Of The First Barbary War

Today is the 210th Anniversary of the end of the First Barbary War (May 10, 1801 to June 10, 1805).  It is certainly an overlooked conflict in history.  In this case, it is no accident that the War is overlooked considering that it was started due to Islamic aggression and included the slavery of White males.  The conflict ended with the United States military defeat of the Barbary Muslims.  The First Barbary War marked the first time that the United States' Flag was raised in victory on foreign soil.
