    [synopsis] => The remarkable story of the bloody conflict that erupted in 1841 Rhode Island over allowing non-property owners to vote.


 The portly Rhode Island aristocrat was hardly the image of the people's champion-but in 1841, Thomas Dorr became just that. At a time when only white male landowners could vote, the idealistic Dorr envisioned a more democratic state.


 In October of that year, the People's Convention ratified a new constitution that extended voting rights to those without land, and Dorr was named governor. That act would spark a small civil war, and violence erupted as the people of the state stood sharply divided in a conflict that reached the president and United States Supreme Court. Author Rory Raven charts the tumultuous and ultimately tragic history of a man and a movement that were too far ahead of their time.
