Description

The Significance of the Wethersfield Raid in the Pequot War

After more than 370 years the Pequot War (1636-1637) remains one of the most controversial and significant events in the Colonial and Native history of North America. The most significant event in the war was the surprise attack on the Pequot fortified village at Mystic on the morning of May 26, 1637. By the end of the one hour battle, over 400 Pequot men, women, and children were dead, half of them burned to death. The attack on the Mistick Fort was in retaliation for the Pequot raid on Wethersfield On April 23 in which nine settlers were killed including women and children. The lecture will explore Pequot motivations for the raid within the broader context of the Pequot War.
