Rhode Island Agricultural Bank $3
1830s Remainder. RI-135 G18
As Roger Durand points out in Obsolete Notes and Scrip of Rhode Island and the Providence Plantations, this note features a vignette seen on no other banknotes. It’s the burning of the Gaspee on June 10, 1772, which took place on a sandbar in Narragansett Bay. This act is considered by many historians as the opening volley of America’s Revolutionary War.
