1841-42, People's Convention. Petition on suffrage (MS)
A manuscript petition on suffrage, submitted to the 1841-42 Convention to draft a state constitution of Rhode Island. Of note, this was part of the
unsanctioned "Dorr Rebellion," when middle-class residents sought to significantly reduce the property requirements for voting. Led by Thomas Wilson
Dorr, this attempt to change the constitution and a subsequent armed rebellion were unsuccessful, but they ultimately led to a new constitution which
liberalized voting rights. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of a title originally held by Department of State in Providence, Rhode Island).
