RHODE ISLAND

 

 

 

 

Rhode Island is the United States smallest state. This is actually the only thing you ever need to know about it. You should actually go back and read about a different state. Go on, I wouldn’t blame you. The one on Kentucky is pretty good.

 

 

WHERE THE NAME COME FROM

 

Ok really? You actually want to know where the name for Rhode Island came from? You’re doing this for a school project aren’t you? Alright fine. I’ll tell you. The name came from some guy who wanted to call it “red island.” They ended up changing the name after deciding the color red was just to violent.

 

 

CLIMATE

 

No one actually knows since the state is not large enough to be inhabited.

 

MAJOR CLIMATE EVENTS

 

Nothing major has ever happened to Rhode Island. Most storms just don’t have the heart to destroy something so small. Rhode Island just looks so cute standing there, pretending to be a grown up.

 

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS

 

Rhode Island doesn’t have many. No one ever has time to stop due to the fact that the entire state is one car length long.

 

 

HISTORY

 

1776: Rhode Island was the first colony to declare for independence from Great Britain. Rhode Island is still upset by the fact that no one really cared until Massachusetts declared independence themselves. Rhode Island is also angered by the fact that Massachusetts still gives it noogies after all these years.

1790: Rhode Island ushered in the industrial revolution. This ended hundreds of years of suffering by African Americans by starting a new era of suffering inside factories making items they themselves could not afford.

1812: Rhode Island refused to participate in the War of 1812. What Rhode Island didn’t realize was that it was never asked to.

1910: The population of Rhode Island reaches 540,000. No one knows how they all fit in there.
