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.

Tour dates are: August 14; September 10; September 25; October 2; and October 15
