The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (commonly known as Rhode Island) is geographically the smallest state in the United States, and the state with the longest official name. Rhode (pronounced "Road") Island is part of the New England region, and was one of the thirteen original American colonies that declared independence against British rule to begin the American Revolution.
My dad owned a tavern/ restaurant in E St. Louis years ago. I tried several on-line historic information websites trying to find some information on it. Every try was a BLANK?? I lived there so I know it existed! It was called by 2 different names, The Chuck Wagon and some called it Dizzy Deans. It was on 13th and Lake. Could someone tell me I didn't imagine all this?!-Submitted by Rich Cristel
