Newport: A Lively Experiment 1639-1969

By Rockwell Stensrud

Hailed “the birthplace of the separation of church and state,” Newport, RI stood as one of America’s most influential settlements long before Edith Wharton and her Gilded Age contemporaries summered along its costal cliffs.  
Covering the social, religious, political, and military events that shaped Newport over three centuries, Rockwell Stensrud offers a distinctive history of an American city unlike any other and a fascinating glimpse of how one small community helped define the nation we live in today.
