It Happened in Rhode Island

Book Description

From the story of Rhode Island's first colonist (who contrary to your elementary-school history book wasn't Roger Williams) to the revolutionary precursors to the Boston Tea Party to the wedding of Jack and Jackie Kennedy, It Happened in Rhode Island captures some the great events in American History and the history of the small, but fascinating, Ocean State.
