Long Islander, Brian Kilmeade is co-author of Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates, as well as a co-host of the morning television show, Fox & Friends on Fox News. Come hear him discuss one of our newly independent nation’s first wars -- a war which saw the founding of both the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps. (The Marine Hymn even notes: “... to the shores of Tripoli.”) His book will be available for sale and the talk will be followed by a book signing.

More information, and directions, are provided on our Calendar page. There you will also find information about past and future meetings.

A message from Dr. Natalie A. Naylor, NCHS President, reviewing the Society’s events of 2015.
