The Old State House

The Old State House give you the chance to visit the room
where Colonists first broke allegiance with England. (no there is not a transporter to Philadelphia) Imagine being asked to agree to never say our Pledge of Allegiance again. On May 4, 1776 the Colonial Assembly of Rhode Island did just that voting to not pledge allegiance to the King. It was like burning the flag. A mighty stroke for independence and two months later the rest of the colonies not doubt inspired by Rhode Island signed the Declaration of Independence.
