            President Thomas Jefferson had had enough and authorized an American attack on the Pasha of Tripoli to put a stop to Barbary pirate raids on American shipping. He placed the former consul to Tunis, William Eaton, in charge of the operation.  Eaton collected Lt. Presley O’Bannon, eight Marines and a Midshipman then off they went to Alexandria, Egypt where they put together a 500 man mercenary army made up of local Christians and Muslims.

            Then on March 8, 1805 they set off for Derna in what is now Lybia. They marched the 1000 miles overland concluding on April 25. Along the way the troop was supplied by U.S. naval vessels following the coastal march.  The Marines had to quell two mutinies along the way since the Muslims and Christian forces didn’t see eye to eye.

            The attack on Derna was supported by three naval vessels on April 27 and concluded the same day. The fighting was intense and two Marines were killed. Lt O’Bannon raised the U.S. flag for the first time in history over conquered foreign territory.  On May 13 the Marines repelled a counterattack and their position was secured.

            O’Bannon was disappointed when the Pasha of Tripoli surrendered without a fight concluding a 1000 year reign of terror by Muslim predators on the Mediterranean Sea.

            The Marines never did attack the “shores of Tripoli” per se but had to settle for the fortress at Derna.  Such are the vagaries of poetic license.
