Richmond And Gaspee

From my Who Destroyed The Gaspee? post at Detour Through History:

The Gaspee Organization makes the case that Barzillai Richmond (and his son and son-in-law)  participated in "the 1772 burning of the hated British revenue schooner, HMS Gaspee, by Rhode Island patriots as America's 'First Blow for Freedom'TM."   [Gaspee Virtual Archives]
