    Archibald Henderson

    Archibald Henderson

    This episode explores one of the most respected Marines in history – Archibald Henderson. Henderson served as the commandant for 38 years; the longest anyone held that position. This length of service earned him the nickname, “Grand Old Man of the Marine Corps.” He'll be in charge for the next few decades, and this episode will set the stage by introducing the fifth commandant of the Marine Corps, who will further define the reputation of the USMC.

    The Second Barbary War

    The Second Barbary War

    This episode discusses the Second Barbary War, also known as the Algerine War. This conflict is relatively quick and will only take one episode to cover. Although there isn’t as much to talk about compared to other wars we reviewed, it is still a significant conflict, and the United States Marine Corps and the United States Navy were instrumental in winning this war.
