Join the Rhode Island Historical Society on this walking tour that examines Providence’s involvement in the American Revolution. We’ll look beyond the stories we often hear about and focus instead on the unseen stories from the past. The tour will consider how everyday people lived their lives in Providence as war changed the world around them. While visiting sites throughout the East Side, we’ll discuss themes like enslaved men attempting to gain freedom, refugees trying to survive plight and famine, and how people functioned in times of uncertainty at our country’s founding. In conjunction with our Goff Lecture, Scott Alexander, the guide who led Nathaniel Philbrick through the streets of Providence’s College Hill, will be delivering the tour.
