Season 2, Episode 3 ”The Rhode Island 1st”

Our nations history has not always been something that we can look back on with great pride. But, it is critical to understand all of our history so that we can learn from our past. The Rhode Island 1st was an officially integrated regiment that fought valiantly in the American Revolution. The world would not witness another officially integrated regiment until well into the 20th century. And the non-integration of American troops would not be eliminated until an Executive Order from President Truman.

We hope you enjoy the story of the Rhode Island 1st and learn about the valiant fighting of this incredible group of men. 

Revolutionary War Rarities is the podcast from the Sons of the American Revolution.
