Ship Movements of the First Barbary War

A supplement to Abigail Mullen, “Good Neighbourhood with All”: Conflict and Cooperation in the First Barbary War, 1801-1805

This digital map is a model based on the locations recorded by the squadrons' crews, collected in the six volumes of Naval Documents Related to the United States Wars with the Barbary Powers (Washington: Government Printing Office, 1939). I collected location data in many forms and then assigned each location a latitude and longitude. On days where there is no observed data, this model interpolates a probable path between the observed points from days before and after.

This map is currently under renovation and will be back up sometime!
