A History of the Providence River

The history of the Rhode Island was made on the banks of Providence River.  It was here that Roger Williams established his colony as a haven for the Independent Man.  The river saw wars, shipyards, canals to the burgeoning textile mills,  slave traders, the first shots of the American Revolution, hurricanes, a record-setting bridge, and a teeming and vibrant modern city.

This book by Robert A. Geake is one of many titles available from History Press focusing on Rhode Island History.
