Seventeenth Century Battlefields in Colonial New England

Author(s): Kevin A. McBride

Year: 2016


The National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program has provided funding to research and document several battlefields associated with the Pequot War (1636-1637) and King Philip's War (1675-1676) in southern New England. These battlefield surveys have yielded hundreds of battle-related objects including weapons, projectiles, equipment, and personal items associated with the Colonial and Native American combatants. These battlefield surveys have also provided significant information on weapons, tactics, technology of the combatants as well as evidence for evolving Native American social, political, and military compelxity.
