These pirates were from affiliated, sometimes unified political entities (similar to city-states) known as the Barbary States. The First Barbary War lasted from 1801 to 1805. The Second Barbary War was fought in 1815. This was one of the first major international conflicts between the United States and a country other than Britain.
