The siege lasted about 10 hours and effectively destroyed the Algerian fleet which, in turn, freed over 1000 Christian slaves. The British commander Admiral Lord Exmouth delivered a peace treaty and demanded that the Algerians sign or the bombardment would continue. According to historical records, the fleet had already fired off all of their ammunition. Their threat notwithstanding, no further bombardment would have been possible. "Fun" and "Learning" do not have to be mutually exclusive.This is something for the serious puzzler. Due to its size we definitely recommend a dedicated work area. Once completed, the puzzle measures a HUGE 76" x 55". Carefully coated with Modge Podge (available at most hobby or Arts & Crafts stores) it is then suitable for framing. Each puzzle is brand new, has never been used and is still in the factory sealed box. So If not for yourself, then the perfect gift. Then, in the block on the left, you can sort by theme.
