Check the list of Gaspee raiders.


We’re so glad you saw our procession in the 2022 Gaspee Parade. This year marks the 250th anniversary of the burning of the Gaspee. The Rhode Island Daughters of the American Revolution recently held a memorial service to honor Gaspee Raider Dr. John Mawney. If you like American History and enjoy supporting worthwhile causes, consider joining us as we preserve history, cultivate patriotism, and encourage education.
