Rhode Island (W3)
"Rhode Island" auch "Little Rhody" genannt, ist eine der 13 ersten Kolonien in Amerika.
Zur Herkunft des Namens gibt es unterschiedliche Hinweise:
Ein Hinweis bezieht "Rhode Island" (vorherige Bezeichnung "Aquidneck Island") im Jahr 1524 von dem Entdecker Giovanni da Verrazzano in Referenz zur griechischen Insel Rhodos benannt wurde. Die erste nachweisbare Benennung als "Rhode Island" findet man im Jahr 1637 von Roger Williams, als "Ile of Rods" oder "Rhod-Island". Die Bezeichnung "Isle of Rodes" findet man seit 1646.
Ein anderer Hinweis bezieht sich auf den Forschungsreisenden Adriaen Block, der um 1610 hier vorbeikam und in einem Werk aus dem Jahr 1625 die Insel mit den Worten engl. "an island of reddish appearance", altdän. "een rodlich Eylande" beschrieb. Auf dänische Karten aus dem Jahr 1659 findet man die Bezeichnung "Roode Eylant" = engl. "Red Island". Die "rote" Erscheinung der Insel könnte auf die roten Blätter in der herbstlichen Jahreszeit zurück zu führen sein - oder aber auch auf die rote Erde in einigen Küstenbereichen.

for the State of Rhode Island
Narragansett (Rhode Island)
It is probable that Verrazano, sailing under the French flag, visited rhode Island waters in 1524. A dutch navigator, Adrian Block, in 1614 explored Narragansett Bay and gave to Block Island the name it bears. The sentence of banishment of Roger Williams from Plymouth Colony was passed in 1635, and in the following year he settled on the site of Providence, acquiring land by purchase from the Indians. One cause of Williams's banishment was his protest against the interference of civil authorities in religious matters. In November, 1637, William Coddington was notified to leave Massachusetts. With the help of Williams, he settled on the site of Portsmouth, in the northerly part of the island of "Rhode Island", which was then called "Aquidneck". Disagreements arising at Portsmouth, Coddington, with a minority of his townsmen, in 1639 moved southward on the island and began the settlement of Newport. Samuel Gorton, another refugee from Massachusetts, in 1638 came first to Portsmouth, and later to Providence, creating discord at both places by denying all power in the magistrates. Gorton finally, in 1643, purchased from the Indians a tract of land in what is now the town of Warwick, and settled there. The four towns, Providence, Warwick, Portsmouth, and Newport, lying in a broken line about thirty miles in length, for many years constituted the municipal divisions of the colony. In 1644 Roger Williams secured from the English Parliament the first charter, which was accepted by an assembly of delegates from the four towns; and a bill of rights, and a brief code of laws declaring the government to be "held by the common consent of all the free inhabitants", were enacted thereunder. In 1663 was granted the charter of Charles II, the most liberal of all the colonial charters. It ordained that no person should be in any way molested on account of religion; and created the General Assembly, with power to enact all laws necessary for the government of the colony, such laws being not repugnant to but agreeable as near as might be to the laws of England, "considering the nature and constitution of the place and people there".
Trivia: How did Rhode Island get its name?
Rhode Island (anglais) USA
Politique du Rhode Island et de ses diverses cultures (1992)
Rhode Island's official nickname is "The Ocean State", a reference to the state's geography, since Rhode Island has several large bays and inlets that amount to about 14% of its total area. Its land area is 1,045 square miles (2706 km2), but its total area is significantly larger.
Origin of the name
Despite the name, most of Rhode Island is on the mainland United States. The official name of the state, "Rhode Island and Providence Plantations", derives from the merger of two colonies. "Rhode Island", the other colonial settlement, was founded near present-day Newport, on what is now commonly called "Aquidneck Island", the largest of several islands in Narragansett Bay. "Providence Plantations" was the name of the colony founded by Roger Williams in the area now known as the "City of Providence".
It is unclear how "Aquidneck Island" came to be known as "Rhode Island". In 1524, the explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano noted the presence of an island near the mouth of Narragansett Bay, which he likened to the Greek island of "Rhodes". Although it is unclear to which island Verrazzano was referring, the pilgrims who later colonized the area decided to apply the moniker "Rhode Island" to "Aquidneck Island". The earliest known use of the name "Rhode Island" was in 1637 by Roger Williams. The name was officially applied to the island in 1644 with these words: "Aquethneck shall be henceforth called the "Ile of Rods" or "Rhod-Island". The name "Isle of Rodes" is found used in a legal document as late as 1646.
Another popular origin theory is based on the fact that Adriaen Block, during his expeditions in the 1610s, passed by "Aquidneck Island", described in a 1625 account of his travels as "an island of reddish appearance" (in 17th-century Dutch, "een rodlich Eylande"). Dutch maps from as early as 1659 call the island "Roode Eylant", or "Red Island". Historians have theorized that the island was named by the Dutch (possibly by Adriaen Block himself) for either the red autumn foliage or red clay on portions of the shore.
"Rhode Island and Providence Plantations" is the longest official name of any state in the Union. On June 25, 2009, the General Assembly voted to allow the people to decide whether to keep the name or drop "Providence Plantations" due to the misperception that the name relates to slavery. The referendum election was held on this subject during the November 2, 2010 elections, and the people overwhelmingly voted (78% to 22%) to keep the original name.

Rhode Island Red - Chicken named after Rhode Island
The "Rhode Island Red" is a breed of chicken ("Gallus gallus domesticus"). They are a utility bird, raised for meat and eggs, and also as show birds. They are a popular choice for backyard flocks because of their egg laying abilities and hardiness. Non-industrial strains of the Rhode Island Red are listed as recovering by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Three vital variations appeared to have had the largest impact around the Rhode Island Red: Asiatics, Game, and Mediterranean.
The Rhode Island Red is the state bird of Rhode Island.
