Stephen Decatur became the youngest U.S. Navy captain ever at age 25. Coining the phrase, “Our country, right or wrong,” Decatur created an enduring legacy of bravery, celebrated in poetry, song, artwork and the naming of dozens of new American towns.
Join us as we welcome biographer Robert Allison to discuss Decatur’s intrepid heroism, leadership and devotion to duty that perfectly embodied the aspirations of our growing nation.
