Thursday, December 12th - Evening Lecture: Rhode Island’s 1772-1773 Gaspee Affair
Presented by Steven Park
During the quiet “lull” between the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party, a small group of Rhode Islanders raided one of His Majesty’s Schooners, destroyed, and and nearly killed its commanding officer. Some historians have been too dismissive of this event, calling them a mere band of hooligans who had too much to drink while many Rhode Islanders have called it the “first shot of the revolution.” Park will help us to explore a more balanced view of the Gaspee Affair as part of our colonial history.
Program begins at 6:30 (doors open at 6pm)
