“Our country! In her intercourse with foreign nations may she always be in the right, but our country, right or wrong!” Stephen Decatur, Tripolitan War hero
The story of the Tripolitan War, or the First Barbary Pirates’ War and the founding of the American Navy, is told in The Story of the Great Republic. Stephen Decatur’s brave deeds in this war, as well as his patriotism evinced by his famous quote, is noted. The merits and truth of this quote makes for wonderful discussion around the family supper table, as well as excellent fodder for high school essays. Does patriotism ever go too far? Why or why not? Support your conclusion with Scripture and events from history.
