    Turmoil in Providence: Rebels and Revolutionaries Walking TourCultural Tours

    SPECIAL OFFER

    Turmoil in Providence: Rebels and Revolutionaries Walking Tour

    A religious dissident kicked out of his colony. A ship-burning renegade. A reformer turned revolutionary. All in the first colony to declare independence from Great Britain. These are just some of the stories guests will relive on the Turmoil in Providence tour. Providence- and the rest of Rhode Island- got the nickname "Rogue's Island" because of its tendency to buck the trend. Providentians had some novel ways of telling King George what we thought. We set British tea ablaze, burned a British ship to the waterline, and declared formal independence on May 4th, 1776: two months before the rest of America. But why did Rhode Island, the smallest of the colonies, choose this patently crazy course of action? This tour closely examines the motivations of all parties involved, and sheds light on the real story. Guests learn about this oft overlooked history and more on the Turmoil in Providence Tour.
