ABSTRACT
The article provides some insights into the history of Rhode Island. Its largest city, Providence was built on hills, but local historians argue about the exact number of hills on which the city was built. The Rhode Island Red hen is the official bird of the state, but the rooster was selected by the businessmen, who admired its speed, virility and noise.
