Dr. Patrick T. Conley, Rhode Island's preeminent historian, journeys with us to early America, where Rhode Island's founders laid the groundwork for America's policy of religious freedom.

Find out why Mary Dyer fought for her religious beliefs until she became one of the "Boston martyrs," how Anne Hutchinson overcame a male-dominated society to allow women the right to preach and teach; and how General Nathanael Greene helped to liberate the South during the American Revolution.

Aboard the Fabre Line to Providence : immigration to Rhode Island by William Jennings( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an era when immigration was at its peak, the Fabre Line offered the only transatlantic route to southern New England. One of its most important ports was in Providence, Rhode Island. Nearly eighty-four thousand immigrants were admitted to the country between the years 1911 and 1934. Almost one in nine of these individuals elected to settle in Rhode Island after landing in Providence, amounting to around eleven thousand new residents. Most of these immigrants were from Portugal and Italy, and the Fabre Line kept up a brisk and successful business. However, both the line and the families hoping for a new life faced major obstacles in the form of World War I, the immigration restriction laws of the 1920s, and the Great Depression. Join authors Patrick T. Conley and William J. Jennings Jr. as they chronicle the history of the Fabre Line and its role in bringing new residents to the Ocean State

A history of the Providence River : With the Moshassuck, Woonasquatucket & Seekonk Tributaries by Robert A Geake( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Providence River begins its journey from the confluence of the Moshassuck and Woonasquatucket Rivers, in the capital city from which the river takes its name. A short distance downstream, the Seekonk River joins with the Providence as they flow on toward the mouth of Narragansett Bay. The history of the Ocean State was made on the banks of this historic river. It was here that Roger Williams established the first settlement dedicated to religious liberty, Rochambeau's army made its first encampment on the road to Yorktown, and the Walsh-Kaiser Shipyard built World War II vessels for the Allied maritime effort. Along its waters glided boats and ships engaged in the slave trade, the raid on the "Gaspee", and all manner of coastal commerce. Historian Robert A. Geake has paddled the river's length to uncover the mysteries coursing within
