NewportRI 20130410
Newport is a city in Rhode Island, located on the northeastern coastline of the United States. It was founded in 1639 after a group of settlers in nearby Portsmouth had a disagreement. During the late 20th Century, it was the site of a "summer White House" for presidents.

Today, it is known as one of the top vacation destinations in New England, for its pictaresque seaside views, and for its abundance of regal mansions.

Newport in People's Lives

Charles Hector d'Estaing: I planned at attack of British ships harbored here in 1778, but was forced to go back to open water after complications.

Henry James: After going back and forth between various cities in Europe and the United States for the past five years, my family settled in this city in 1860, when I was 17 years old. Here, I befriended painter John la Farge, and became more well read and varied in my studies. I especially began to admire French literature, most notably the work of Honore de Balzac, who greatly impacted me "more than any other writer." In the fall of 1861, I was helping to fight a fire, and injured my back. This injury lingered with me for the rest of my life, and also made me unfit for service when I attempted to enlist as a soldier in the Civil War. In 1864, my family moved to Boston, when I was 21 years old.
