The Dorr War Explained

Anyone interested in Rhode Island history should plan to be here at the Library Monday evening at 7:00 for a talk by Dorr Rebellion expert Russ DeSimone, accompanied by a screening of a documentary on the War. The Dorr Rebellion is a fascinating episode in the state's history, and DeSimone -- one of the people responsible for the excellent Providence College Dorr Rebellion website -- is one of the best people to discuss it.
