Barbary States - ∙ The Barbary States are the present-day countries of Morocco,  Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. Barbary, which in Latin means "foreign," designated the  nature of this territory in relation to the Roman Empire, and the name has stuck. As  Islamic powers with control of the southern Mediterranean coast, the Barbary States  were able to exact exorbitant tributes from American and European seafarers during the  eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, before they lost their sovereignty to the  extended reach of colonization.  Bill of Rights - ∙ The Bill of Rights is the name given to the first ten amendments to the  Constitution, passed as a group in 1791. These amendments outline the basic rights of  all American citizens, including the freedom of speech and the right to bear arms.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
