Roger Williams came to North America from England as a Puritan minister in 1631 then separated from the church and formed a more religiously tolerant colony that became Rhode Island.

There are no known portraits of him made while he was alive, which created a dilemma for sculptor Armand LaMontagne in 1997, when he was commissioned to make a bronze sculpture of Williams for the campus of Rhode Island's Roger Williams University.

So LaMontagne gave his statue the face of Boston Red Sox legend Ted Williams instead.

Neat.

Did you ever notice that the picture on the $2 bill looks just like Buddy Epsen?
