The Barbary Pirates were North Africans who captured, looted and sank American merchant ships. In order for the ships to get by the merchant ships had been paying a tribute to them, but Jefferson was elected President in 1800 and declared he would not pay one penny as tribute to the pirates. Therefore, he sent a battleship to end the blockade. However, the ship was sunk and another ship was captured. Jefferson payed $60,000 in ransom for the ship and its crew and signed a peace treaty with the pirates.

Can resin preserve?
The answer to this question is: Yes, resin can preserve. Formally known as tree resin, it is a white, thick liquidized substance that was a tree sap. When tree resin solidifies or preserves, it turns into amber, a beautiful golden resin. It has a see through colour (like golden glass), that can be used for making jewellery. In most cases, insects and plants get trapped in the tree resin and stay there forever, even when it hardens! It's like a mammoth in ice. The objects trapped inside can't escape and stay in one piece. It is often found on beaches in Scandinavia.
