Storyboard Text

  • When Jefferson was president, he had problems with pirates. His sailors would be impressed by the British. This means sailors were kidnapped and forced to work on British ships
  • You have been impressed sailor!
  • The Americans also faced a different threat at sea. The pirates of Barbary Coast constantly preyed on ships in the Mediterranean. They would capture the sailors and hold them for ransom.
  • Get on the ship. You are only going back home once your country pays us
  • The Americans, who were sick of paying tribute to the Barbary States, bombarded Tripoli with their cannons.
  • One of the ships, the Philadelphia, was captured and held for ransom. Rather then let pirates take control of the ship, Stephen Decatur, the captain, led a raiding party into the Tripoli harbor, and set the ship on fire.
  • Although the threat from Barbary Coast was over, the British and French continued to attack American ships. Jefferson then proposed an embargo, which halts trade with and from the US.
  • I shall propose an embargo!
