LECTURE: Mike Tougias on Mayflower to King Philip’s War

About this Event

Join us for a Zoom lecture!

November of 2020 marks the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims’ landing in Plymouth and establishing the first permanent colonial settlement in the New World. Crucial to their success was the friendship of Wampanoag leader Massasoit. Later, Massasoit’s son Metacom, also known as Philip, went to war with the colonies to try and regain their tribal land. While most Americans understand the significance of the landing of the Mayflower and the first Thanksgiving with Massasoit, King Philip’s War and its ramifications are much less well-known.

The presentation will shed a light on the Indian way of life pre-contact, the landing of the Mayflower, the growing Colonial settlements, and the events leading up to the war as well as the battles and the strategy during this cataclysmic war, which on a per capita basis was the bloodiest conflict in our nation’s history.

Please note, this is an online lecture. After registration, you will be emailed information about accessing the program.
