Spies in Revolutionary Rhode Island

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Free

Offered in Partnership with the Battle of Rhode Island Association

Espionage played a vital role during the American Revolution in Rhode Island. The British and Americans each employed spies to discover the secrets, plans and positions of their enemy. Little Compton’s residents, beyond providing soldiers, worked as some of these spies —providing key information on the British occupation of Aquidneck Island just across the Sakonnet River. Author Christian M. McBurney unravels the world of spies and covert operations in Rhode Island during the Revolutionary War with a particular focus on Little Compton stories.
