The Rhode Island State Archives
The Gaspee Raiders: Pirates or Patriots

The Gaspee Raiders: Pirates or Patriots illustrates the pivotal role Rhode Islanders played in our nation’s fight for independence through the testimonies, letters, and depositions gathered following the burning of The Gaspee event on June 9, 1772. The exhibition is one example of how the State Archives allows Rhode Islanders to see how the actions of concerned citizenry have shaped our history.
