This Ship Monument, at the gateway to Green Square in Tripoli, is within a few hundred yards of the unmarked graves of Lt. Richard Somers, Lt. Henry Wadsworth, Midshipman Charles Israel and five men of the USS Intrepid, which exploded in Tripoli harbor while on a secret, suicide mission on September 4, 1804.
