Our friend and guest-blogger Michael Kahn sent an update on his efforts to honor a unique Continental regiment and their commander by erecting three statues commemorating the soldiers and officers of the First Rhode Island Regiment (Details Here). According to Michael they have narrowed down the list of potential sculptors to four talented artists and are planning on having the finalists selected and a design made public by next month. Donations will continue to be petitioned throughout the process. A formal press release will follow. Michael also sent a PDF of the pamphlet that their town planner has made up for public dissemination (View Here). We will keep you updated on this special project as it progresses. The First Rhode Island Regiment’s contributions are a unique and important part of our Nation’s story that demands this kind of preservation and presentation.
