Colonial American Militias – – Rhode Island author and historian Robert Geake presents a talk on Early American militias. Wednesday, May 23rd at 7pm. American militias from their inception were created to serve and protect their communities. Though they involved themselves in a larger army when crisis occurred, the onset of the American Revolution and the enforcement of a standing army brought about a separate war of independence, one in which militias fought for their right to choose their own officers, be punctually paid, and return home at will from service within a “foreign” state.” Sponsored by the North Stonington Historical Society and Wheeler Library.
