So said Nathanael Greene whenever General George Washington needed a point man to solve a problem or lead a part of the Continental Army into battle against the British. A native Rhode Islander with limited military experience, Greene rose quickly to become one of Washington's trusted staff members,only to die at an early age after the War. He is one of the true heroes of the War. This is Greene's homestead, a late 18th century house that has been remarkably maintained through a series of different owners. It now stands on a sizeable lot in north Coventry, beautiful in its simplicity. Tours (45 minutes) through the house are provided by local staff with a commentary on Greene's life that fills in many of the gaps left in history books. The signs off of I95 are well positioned to help you find the house, nestled in a north Coventry suburb. A GPS will help and is becomes a necessity to retrace your steps to the interstate.
