("The Hounds of God"), there is also a brief mention in Chapter 7. A substantial portion of the former New Haven main line between New York and Boston was transferred to Amtrak in 1976 and now forms a major portion of the electrified (railway electrification system) Northeast Corridor, hosting high-speed ''Acela Express'' and regional rail (Northeast Regional (Amtrak)) service.

Areas of concentration Major communities that include high numbers of Cambodian Americans exist across the United States, including Long Beach (Long Beach, California) (36,233), Boston (17,301), Orange County (Orange County, California) (4,441), San Diego (4,314), New York City (4,060), Philadelphia (7,790), Oakland (Oakland, California) (10,552), Minneapolis (4,149), Seattle (12,391), Fresno (Fresno, California) (4,173), Providence (Providence, Rhode Island) (9,330), Stockton (Stockton, California) (9,313), Dallas-Fort Worth (Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex) (5,596), Modesto (Modesto, California) (2,959), and Chicago (2,764). In the 2006 American Community Survey, figures for Cambodian-Americans were released back in September 2007 by the U.S. Census Bureau. According to the 2006 report, the top ten states for Cambodian-Americans were #1: California (86,700), #2: Massachusetts (22,106), #3: Washington (Washington (U.S. state)) (13,055), #4: Texas (11,646), #5: Minnesota (7,790), #6: Pennsylvania (6,787), #7: Virginia (6,153), #8: New York (5,720), #9: Rhode Island (5,030), and #10: Georgia (Georgia (U.S. state)) (4,592). Half of the Cambodian American population in the United States is in California, with Long Beach having the highest density of Cambodian Americans in the U.S. There is also a large population in Massachusetts, concentrated in around Lowell (Lowell, Massachusetts) and Lynn (Lynn, Massachusetts). Lowell is considered to have the second highest population of Cambodians, Lynn is the third city with the highest population. Cambodian Americans are quickly growing in numbers in the entire Northeast (Northeastern United States), but more so in the states of Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. Michigan and Illinois have also seen growth in the Cambodian American population. '''Route 146''' is a high-speed road, mostly freeway, linking Rhode Island Route 146 (the North Smithfield Expressway towards Providence, Rhode Island) to I-290 (Interstate 290 (Massachusetts)) in Worcester, Massachusetts. South of the interchange with Route 122A (Route 122A (Massachusetts)), Route 146 is known as the '''Worcester-Providence Turnpike'''. Unlike some roads designated as turnpikes, the road has never had tolls, and was built on a brand new alignment in the 1930s. Similar never-tolled turnpikes are the Berlin Turnpike in Connecticut and the Boston-Providence Turnpike in Massachusetts.

Island . During the summer and early fall, bonfires are placed just above the surface of the three rivers that pass through the middle of downtown Providence, which give out pleasing smells of aromatic wood. This, combined with live music, creates a public cultural event that brings people into a central urban area after dark while engaging the senses and emotions of those who stroll the paths and bridges of Waterplace Park. *'''Rhode Island''' **Providence (Providence, Rhode Island) – T.

He had by now earned the nickname "Grand Turk", and in the summer of 1847 made plans to edit an anthology of poetry by American women. Bayless, 143 He believed that women were incapable of the same kind of "intellectual" poetry as men and believed they needed to be divided: "The conditions of aesthetic ability in the two sexes are probably distinct, or even opposite", he wrote in his introduction.

ISBN 0-292-76540-2 The selections he chose for ''The Female Poets of America'' were not necessarily the greatest examples of poetry but instead were chosen because they emphasized traditional morality and values.

ISBN 0-292-76540-2 That same year, Griswold began working on what he considered "the ''maximum opus'' of his life", an extensive biographical dictionary. Although he worked on it for several years and even advertised for it, it was never produced. Bayless 201 He also helped Elizabeth F. Ellet publish her book ''Women of the American Revolution'', and was angered when she did not acknowledge his assistance in the book. Bayless, 143–144 In July 1848, he visited poet Sarah Helen Whitman in Providence, Rhode Island, although he had been suffering with vertigo (vertigo (medical)) and exhaustion, rarely leaving his apartment at New York University, and was unable to write without taking opium. In autumn of that year, he had an epileptic fit (epilepsy), the first of many he would suffer for the remainder of his life. One fit caused him to fall out of a ferry in Brooklyn and nearly drown. Silverman, 441 He wrote to publisher James T. Fields: "I am in a terrible condition, physically and mentally. I do not know what the end will be ... I am exhausted—betwixt life and death—and heaven and hell." In 1849, he was further troubled when Charles Fenno Hoffman, with whom he had become good friends, was committed to an insane asylum.

Providence, Rhode Island

'''Providence''' is the capital (Capital city) and most populous city in Rhode Island. Founded in 1636, it is one of the oldest cities in the United States. The city is situated at the mouth of the Providence River, at the head of Narragansett Bay.

Providence was founded by Roger Williams (Roger Williams (theologian)), a religious exile from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He named the area in honor of "God's merciful Providence" (Divine Providence), which he believed was responsible for revealing such a haven for him and his followers to settle. After being one of the first cities in the country to industrialize, Providence became noted for its jewelry and silverware (silver (household)) industry. Today, the city of Providence is home to eight hospitals and seven institutions of higher learning, which has shifted the city's economy into service industries, though it still retains significant manufacturing activity.

Once nicknamed the "Beehive of Industry", Providence began rebranding itself as the "Creative Capital" in 2009 to emphasize its educational resources and arts community.
