Produced by prolific American cartographer and publisher Anthony Finley, this depiction of the smallest state in the Union shows it in a period of great prosperity and growth. Finley’s maps and atlases were popular during the period for their detail and distinctive aesthetic. By 1829 Rhode Island had experienced an immense period of growth due to the industrial revolution, and the state had developed a prosperous manufacturing economy with cities attracting immigrants from Northern Europe and Ireland due to famine and civil unrest, respectively. The water-powered mills in Rhode Island created a high demand for workers, and cities were densely populated as communities were established. By the 1820s, Providence was one of the most important manufacturing cities in the United States.
Rhode Island was the last of the 13 original colonies to ratify the Constitution and experienced relative peace during the American Revolution as British forces focused their efforts on New York. Though, Newport was occupied by British troops in 1877 before they started their campaign south.
Rhode Island joined the United States in 1790 and, similar to the ratification of the Constitution, was the last of the original colonies to join, indicating its deeply independent spirit. By the 1830s, many of those working in the factories and mills demanded voting reform as the state was still governed under its charter established in 1663, which required land ownership as the minimum standard for voting. This map immediately transports the viewer back in time and truly an authentic piece of cartographical history.
