Rhode Island Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration Commission | State Archives Catalog

Name: Rhode Island Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration Commission


Historical Note: In February 2011, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed a Joint Resolution creating the Rhode Island Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration Commission to observe and remember the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and Rhode Island's major role in that vast conflict. The twenty-seven member Commission is charged with collaborating with other state and national organizations; acknowledging the contributions of Rhode Island's soldiers, sailors and citizens; and developing programs, projects and activities relating to the Civil War that have lasting educational value within our state. The creation of this website is one effort to achieve these objectives.
