Rhode Island’s Industrial Revolution

This article is more or less the written account of my documentary film entitled Rhode Island’s Industrial Revolution: The Rise and Fall of an Empire. So if you’ve seen that and aren’t much of a reader, there’s not a whole lot of new information here.

However, there is a bit more discussion about things that would have been rambling in the film. There are also images that you can look at at your own pace, rather than how I decided you get to see them in the film. All of my research references will be provided through links at the bottom of this article.
