Close, it's actually Namquid Point in Warwick, and yes it was Joseph Bucklin who fired the first shot and wounded Lieutenant Dudingston of the British Royal Navy, and commander of the Gaspee in the early morning hours of June 10, 1772.

It was Captain Lindsey who lured the gaspee on to the sand bar off Namquid Point by leading Dudingston on a chase up Narragansett Bay from Newport. Lyndsey turned sharp to the west and Dudingston thought for sure he had him, and tacked in a straight line and grounded his ship making it easy pickings for the Rhody's to attack under cover of night.

It was Pawtuxet Village that the wounded Dudingston was transported to and assisted back to health. He later became "Rear Admiral" of the Royal Navy later in the war.

Hey, once a Rhody, always a Rhody, no matter where you move to!

Does anyone remember when they removed Roger Williams from the top of the state house and could not get him back on?

I remember the Almacs at Hoxie "Faw Cawnes", we used to shop there.

(Faw=four and cawnes=corners, my lame attempt at "Rhode Island-ese)

Hey Coach Rick--
I'm from MA, as I said, so we don't "count" the Gaspee! We have a place called Lexington and Concord up here that we're fond of.
Tolman or Shea?

Yes, you can take the girl out of RI but you can't take the RI out of the girl! I do miss being close to a hot weiner joint though...

Do you mean The Independent Man? Okay, here's a question, where is there an exact replica of the Independent Man displayed?

Re: Hoxie Four Corners, this is the Dave's Marketplace that I shop at all the time. It's across the street from my daughter's dance lessons in the old building where Tuffy's Aquarium used to be.

Yes!! What a dork I am. I used to make fun of people who thought it was Roger Williams! It has been 21 years since I lived there, so I need a little grace! So where else is it displayed?

He's at the Warwick Mall. Somewhere I have a picture of my brothers and I taken next to the real Independent Man when he was taken down a few years (OK... decades) ago for a little touch up, and it was at that time that they made the replica.

Well of course you don't. But of course the bending of the truth is why Roger left Ma. and founded RI...

Keough...Yep, all girls....

Touche! You guys in RI definitely get credit as the most religously tolerant colony.

RI gal here in Warwick! Born in the "bucket". Raised in Attleboro, MA. Spent 1 year in CA , bounced back to Attleboro then Pawtucket, and finally now in Warwick..... though looking for a house in more south RI now.

Been a DVC member since 2005 and love it! Going on my next trip for my 29th Bday in 3 weeks. Staying at BCV then Poly. Can't wait, my first time staying in those resorts.

P.S. Got some DEL's in the freezer! Yummy!

Go PBruins!

Oops, sorry I didn't see this post until just now. I lived on Namquid Drive in Warwick. And off of Namquid Drive was Gaspee Point (sandbar in the bay). Were we calling that point the wrong thing or is Namquid Point somewhere else nearby?

I am sure after the historical burning of the Gaspee the name was changed, but as of 1772 it was Namquid point, at least by historical records I have seen. Yes that is the sandbar that Captain Lindsey cunningly lured Dudingston on to.
