The Gaspee Incident

Warwick was the site of the burning of the British customs frigate HMS Gaspée on June 10, 1772. As a revenue cutter charged with enforcing the Stamp Act 1765 and Townshend Acts in an area where smuggling was common, the vessel was lured aground on the western shore of the Narragansett Bay on June 9, 1772, and in an act of colonial defiance that gained considerable notoriety, it was burned the next day.
