Review: SONS OF PROVIDENCE by Charles Rappleye

sons of providenceBookworm’s Dinner reviewed Sons of Providence by Charles Rappleye for the 2013 American Revolution Reading Challenge. Here’s an excerpt:

John and Moses Brown, two incongruous brothers were loyal to Britain. Yet, when a series of revenue raising taxes descended on the colonies, the Browns saw it as economic servitude to England. Charles Rappleye presents a history of Rhode Island and the Slave Trade through his research of primary documents and through letters of correspondence between the Brown brothers. Most people would be surprised to read about the significance of the Browns, and the relationship Newport and Providence and all Rhode Island had in the slave trade.
