Each year, in June, the battery marches along the well-known route in Warwick, Rhode Island dedicated to the Gaspee Day Parade. The parade celebrates the burning of the British revunue schooner, HMS Gaspee. The revolutionary event occurred in 1772, a year before Boston's Tea Party!
The battery takes up colors in it's march along Narragansett Parkway in Warwick, Rhode Island in honor of the state's history and initiatives in respect to the HMS Gaspee prior to the American Revolution.
The Battery takes up colors and marches along the two mile parade route in this fantastic tribute to Rhode Island's Revolutionary War history!
