Guide to Historic Burial Grounds in Newport, A by Lewis Keen Pdf

While now known as America's summer playground, Newport was at one time the nation's fifth-largest seaport, containing a diverse population that is reflected in its burial sites. Of special significance is the largest marked site for eighteenth-century African Americans in the country, as well as the oldest surviving colonial Jewish burial site. Notable burials include those for William Ellery, who signed the Declaration of Independence, and Richard Morris Hunt, the eminent nineteenth-century architect. It is also home to John Stevens, a noted gravestone carver who led six generations of his family to create exquisite stones throughout the city. Those same traditions are carried on today by the Benson family, America's premier stone carvers. Join local author and tour guide Lewis Keen as he explores the fascinating history behind the city's early burial grounds.

Newport's Gilded Age by Donna Russo Morin Pdf

Both books in Donna Russo Morin's 'Newport's Gilded Age', a series of historical fiction, now available in one volume! Gilded Summers: Pearl and Ginevra grow up in the era known as the Gilded Age in Newport, Rhode Island. Surrounded by Astors and Vanderbilts, Pearl fills her days with teatime and shallow friendships, yearning for something more. A chance meeting with Mary Cassatt sparks her secret desire to be an artist. Meanwhile Ginevra, fresh off the boat from Italy, finds her own dreams out of reach as she joins the unwelcoming household as a servant and seamstress. The girls become fast friends, but must keep their friendship hidden from Pearl’s controlling mother. Soon, the two young women must decide who they want to be in this world, and survive what it takes to get there...even if it includes murder. Gilded Dreams: The battle for the vote is on fire in America. The powerful and rich women of Newport, Rhode Island nearly single-handedly funded the major suffrage parties. Yet they have been left out of history, tossed aside as mere socialites. Pearl and Ginevra are college graduates, professional women, wives, and mothers. The two progressive women have fought their way through some of life’s harshest challenges. Now they set their sights on the vote, the epitome of all they have struggled for, the embodiment of their dreams. From the sinking of the Titanic, through World War 1, Pearl and Ginevra are once more put to the test.

Music/City by Jonathan R. Wynn Pdf

Austin’s famed South by Southwest is far more than a festival celebrating indie music. It’s also a big networking party that sparks the imagination of hip, creative types and galvanizes countless pilgrimages to the city. Festivals like SXSW are a lot of fun, but for city halls, media corporations, cultural institutions, and community groups, they’re also a vital part of a complex growth strategy. In Music/City, Jonathan R. Wynn immerses us in the world of festivals, giving readers a unique perspective on contemporary urban and cultural life. Wynn tracks the history of festivals in Newport, Nashville, and Austin, taking readers on-site to consider different festival agendas and styles of organization. It’s all here: from the musician looking to build her career to the mayor who wants to exploit a local cultural scene, from a resident’s frustration over corporate branding of his city to the music executive hoping to sell records. Music/City offers a sharp perspective on cities and cultural institutions in action and analyzes how governments mobilize massive organizational resources to become promotional machines. Wynn’s analysis culminates with an impassioned argument for temporary events, claiming that when done right, temporary occasions like festivals can serve as responsive, flexible, and adaptable products attuned to local places and communities.

Captain Christopher Newport by Allen Bryant Nichols Pdf

"In this first full-length biography of Christopher Newport (1561-1617), Nichols portrays, in carefully research detail, the adventurous life on the high seas of the courageous sea captain who founded the Jamestown Colony in Virginia. As a young man, Newport sailed with Sir Francis Drake in the daring attack on the Spanish fleet at Cadiz and participated in England's defeat of the Spanish Armada. During the war with Spain, Newport seized fortunes of Spanish and Portuguese treasure in fierce sea battles in the West Indies as a privateer for Queen Elizabeth I. He led more attacks on Spanish shipping and settlements than any other English privateer. While leading his men aboard an enemy ship off the coast of Cuba, his right arm was 'strooken off', and Newport was referred to thereafter as, 'Christopher Newport of the one hand.' Admiral of Virginia, Newport led the fleet of colonists who established the first permanent English settlement in the New World. He chose the site for Jamestown, led the initial exploration for King James, and negotiated peacefully with Chief Powhatan's Indian tribes. Newport repeatedly rescued colonists from famine with four resupply voyages. When the 'Sea Venture' was shipwrecked on Bermuda during a hurricane, Newport organized 150 colonists to build two new vessels for their deliverance to Jamestown. In his later career, Newport led three long trading voyages to the Far East for the East India Company. He brought the first English ambassadors to Persia and India. His many voyages laid the foundations for the evolution of the British Empire. Captain Christopher Newport was an outstanding navigator, stern but compassionate sea captain, and legendary leader of men." -- Page 4 of cover.

The Newport Bridge by James M. Ricci Pdf

Newport is a premier destination, but getting to the city has not always been easy. For three centuries, ferries crossed Narragansett Bay's East Passage. That all changed on June 28, 1969, the day the Newport Bridge opened, and it closed the last remaining gap between Aquidneck and Conanicut Islands. Proponents of the bridge persevered political squabbles and delays for twenty-five years following World War II to make it a reality. The longest suspension bridge in the region incorporated several new technologies and construction techniques and changed the face of Rhode Island. Author James Ricci details the trials and tribulations that produced an iconic bridge.

The Newport Girls by Elaine Colton Pdf

At the tender age of eleven, Elaine Colton moved to Newport, Rhode Island, to live with her Navy civilian engineer father. Life had already been difficult for Elaine, having lost her mother at an early age; she desperately needed a friend to stand by her side. Instead, she got not one, but "fifteen" friends who supported her from childhood through adulthood for the next fifty years. Warm, witty, and full of love, "The Newport Girls" chronicles Colton's extraordinary lifelong relationship with her closest girlfriends. Beginning in 1952, Colton relates meeting Leenie Callahan, a girl who lived across the street, and how the two soon became best friends. They expanded their friendship circle in high school to include other like-minded girls. Together, these friends modeled for the local department store, wrote columns for the school paper, and enjoyed their carefree high school years. Despite the girls' wide dispersal around the country following graduation, they never lost affection for each other. Through marriages, career changes, children, financial hardships, divorce, and even death, the bond these women maintained for so long continued to hold strong. Along with numerous snapshots, other Newport Girls share their experiences in touching personal essays. In a story of the power of enduring friendship, the Newport Girls were always there for each other-and still are today.
