"Jefferson's War" is concise reading of a story that more people need to know.
I am thrilled Audible offers it. The story talks about how Jefferson and his predecessors, and others in the Administrations, dealt with the Barbery pirates. Along the way, we learn the early history of The United States Marines, the namesake of Decatur, IL, the link between the battles and the National Anthem, and why the eagle in The Great Seal of the United States of America does need to hold both arrows and the olive branch.
I encourage all to give this a listen.
Cloud Atlas is simply the best-read audiobook I have ever heard. Its several stories each kept me engrossed for my entire listening, and I consistently wished I had more drive time to hear more. Each narrator is to be commended for so enlivening their stories - Thanks, to all! I look forward to more work from them and David Mitchell - these stories, and their link, are wonderful and wonderfully told, too.
