Join Us for the Ranger Walkabout on Thursday, July 31: The American Civil War & General Ambrose Burnside – A Misunderstood General, A Walking Tour of Burnside's Providence
General Ambrose Burnside was a very prominent Rhode Islander with a much maligned Civil War past. Yet, is what we know about General Burnside really true? Civic minded, an elected Governor and an entrepreneur, but the reputation as a very bad general. Is it true? Is it fair?
Join Ranger Chuck Arning and Greg Mierka, Civil War Historian, to learn more about this fascinating man.
Parking: This program will begin at the Roger Williams National Memorial at 282 North Main St., Providence. Use the Memorial's parking area (the entrance is at the corner of Canal Street and Smith Street). There is also parking along North Main Street.
