Gaspee: The Spark that Ignited the American Revolution is an exhibition at the RI State Archives that explores the attack on the HMS Gaspee, a British revenue schooner, through eye-witness accounts and period testimonies. The attack and its aftermath were a key catalyst for events that followed, including the Boston Tea Party, and eventually, full-scale revolution. The exhibition is accompanied by digital resources available on the Department of State website.
