Join us for our next meeting as Paolo DiGregorio presents King Philip’s War

As the population grew in Massachusetts, trouble with the Indians increased in the 17th century. The Indians never understood the arrangements that the Puritans made with them as they felt deprived of their best land and hunting grounds. In 1675, Metacomet, Chief of the Wampanoags, who was the youngest son of Massasoit and his warriors rose up against the colonists. This bloody war occurred mainly in Massachusetts and Rhode Island resulting in 600 English colonials and 3000 Native Americans killed.
