More on the Dorr War

I’m now 41% through the book, at Chapter 8 titled “There is Danger Here”. (Location 884 of 2156).

Not going to spill much detail, you have to read it if you’re a Rhode Islander, or even if you’re not.

All I can say is the mid 19th century wasn’t a good time for all. You had the misogynistic, racist elements in control. You had obstinate legislators (Hmm, that sounds familiar!) and at one point two competing governments in the state at the time.

It’s really fascinating.
