Description
As a rare account by a woman and a Loyalist during the French and Patriot attack on British forces at Newport in September 1778, Mrs. Almy's account provides valuable insights into a civilian woman's reactions to the war and to the situation in Newport. Among many other things, she graphically describes her attempts to protect her children as the French naval squadron under the Comte d'Estaing fought its way in and out of Narragansett Bay during the Battle of Rhode Island.
