1481 - Tripoli
Strange things: Yesterday the main news was about the U. S. evacuating the embassy in Tripoli, because of danger there for Americans. Two hours later we are watching the SeaFair parade and the marine band marches by. What are they playing? "From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli...." Unbelievable. Wasn't it President Adams who sent the marines to Tripoli to quell the Barbary Pirates? In the late 1790's? Nothing changes
