Product Description

Part of National Geographic's Voices from Colonial America series, Rhode Island: 1636-1776 covers the history of Rhode Island from its founding until they joined the Union. This thorough book is a treat to look through and read. Cream-colored pages offset traditional fonts and light green chapter headings; two-tone and full-color illustrations are included throughout. Through photographs, historical maps, and lively first-person excerpts from primary documents, students will learn about Roger William's founding of the colony, the negotiations with the Narragansett people, the role smuggling played in the economy, why they refused to sign the Constitution until the 11th hour, and more. 112 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket. Ages 10-14.

Publisher's Description

Did you know that Rhode Island was founded by an outcast of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and that his ideal of religious freedom later became a guaranteed right of every American when the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution?

Through first-person accounts, historical maps, and archival images, readers learn how the foundations of this culturally diverse colony were laid: How town meetinghouses forged strong democratic roots; about the role that slavery and smuggling played in the colony once known as Rogues' Island; and why Rhode Islanders were among the first to declare independence, yet the last to sign the Constitution. We also learn of Rhode Island's proud claim to the first Black Regiment.
