An historical inquiry concerning the attempt to raise a regiment of slaves by Rhode Island during the war of the revolution
The author shows that there was no regiment of slaves from Rhode Island, but that under a law in force February-June 1778 about 90 slaves were enlisted and freed, their masters being recompensed by the state. They were incorporated in the 1st Rhode Island continental line, and their conduct at the battle of Rhode Island and elsewhere is investigated. Olney, originally in the 2d Rhode Island regiment, became lieutenant colonel of the 1st, when the two were consolidated and commanded the regiment the closing years of the war.
