Maria Martin, came out in 1800. Historian Paul Baepler has estimated that between 1798 and 1817, American publishers printed more than a hundred Barbary captivity editions. THE ODYSSEY OF THE EDWIN 19 Some contemporaries weighed the slavery in Algiers against the domestic American brand. William Eaton, a Connecticut Yankee and the United States consul at Tunis, recognized the hypocrisy of condemning Barbary slavery while slavery existed throughout America: [R]emorse seizes my whole soul when I reflect that this is indeed but a copy of the very barbarity which my eyes have seen in my own native country.

But slavery on the Barbary coast was manifestly not merely an attitude. Most of the Christian slaves put to hard labor in Barbary suffered and toiled, not unlike the ancient Israelites under the pharaoh in Egypt. Most, like the crew of the Edwin, worked in the quarries outside of the city breaking, hauling, and carrying rock down to the mole of the harbor to extend and improve the seawall and breakers, or to rebuild and improve the city’s extensive seaward-side fortifications, prodded along by overseers who beat them with sticks with a sharpened point.

Paying off the Barbary regencies was the inevitable and logical result of being too poor and disorganized a country after the Revolutionary War to afford building and maintaining a navy. John Adams, as American minister to Britain in the 1780s, and a man almost always able to put his finger on the essence of an issue, put it bluntly in a letter to Thomas Jefferson: [I]f our States could be brought to agree in the measure, I should be very willing to resolve upon external war with vigor, and protect our trade and people.
