Fading Glory on Nations Bday

I had re-listed "Fading Glory" in honor of the fourth of July.
I will have a couple of other patriotically themed pieces in the upcoming weeks. Not in honor of anything in particular other than the fact I live in North America and I have become something of a history buff recently. Imagine little sloops and cruisers heading into the hot Arabian nights along the coast of North Africa with names like The Intrepid or USS Argus. Imagine being in a world in which Tripoli has declared war on the then newborn USA (c. 1801). Real life pirates swashbuckling their way to glory or death. More to come on these themes in the near future.
