Don’t miss this fascinating lecture with Dr. Erik J. Chaput, detailing the history of the often forgotten 1842 Dorr Rebellion in Rhode Island, one of the most significant political and constitutional events before the Civil War. Chaput will explain how the politics surrounding Thomas Wilson Dorr's attempt at extralegal reform in Rhode Island led to the active involvement of prominent New England abolitionists, including Abby Kelley, Stephen Foster and Frederick Douglass
