Charting History is a cohesive, chronological, and thematic narrative of Rhode Island’s history. It follows the major threads of commerce, conflict, and conscience to tell the stories of RI and the people who have lived here throughout history up to the present day. This exhibit is designed to introduce visitors to Rhode Island’s rich and varied past.

 

This exhibition, a joint project of the Newport Historical Society and the Rhode Island Historical Society, was made possible by a grant from the Alletta Morris McBean Charitable Trust.

Earlier today, Biden said he looked forward to campaigning next week after he recovers from COVID.       A major I-T outage is doing a lot of damage around the globe. Airlines, hospitals, banks, shops are struggling to get back online. Microsoft says it's working with companies to get them back online. Meanwhile, a sea of stranded travelers are stuck in airports across the U.S. as airlines struggle with their systems.       Former President Trump will hold his first joint campaign rally with Vice Presidential candidate JD Vance on Saturday. The indoor event will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a week after Trump was shot in an assassination attempt at a rally. Trump formally accepted his party's presidential nomination on Thursday at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee.       The director of the Secret Service will face Congress on Monday. Director Kimberly Cheatle will testify before lawmakers for the first time since the assassination attempt on former President Trump at his Pennsylvania rally. She will no doubt be grilled about reported failures by her agency at the event. Cheadle has refused calls to resign.        The lights are still coming back on in the Houston area after Hurricane Beryl made landfall on July 8th. The number of residents still without power has shrunk, but it's still in the thousands. As of last check, at least six thousand customers were still waiting for service to be restored.
