My Life in the South

VIEWS: 27 PAGES: 3

King Philip’s War is Ellis and Morris’ renowned story of the uprising that occurred after more than a half-century of peaceful co-existence with the English settlers. Metacomet, son of Massasoit of the Wampanoag tribe, led an uprising in 1675 that would later be known as King Philip’s War. The Natives’ resistance to increased English demand for food, land and the acceptance of English laws finally escalated into open revolt. The Nipmuck, Narragansett and Wampanoag tribes united to preserve their way of life in a doomed fight that killed hundreds of colonists and thousands of natives. Using original colonial documents, the authors researched published and unpublished archives and correspondence creating King Philips War. Though these pages the reader can relive the battles that eventually led to the demise of the Indian way of life in this era.
