Indian War in Connecticut History
When: Wednesday, October 18th at 6:30 PM
Where: Town Hall Assembly Room
Connecticut has generally been seen as a bucolic, rather quiet state. But early in its history, the state saw bloody battles, both between Native American tribes and between natives and colonists. This talk will center on two major Indian wars of the period – the Pequot-Mohegan War and King Philip’s War. It will also deal in part with the battle fought in Fairfield that ended in Pequot-Mohegan War in 1637. The talk will present a lesser-known aspect of our region’s and state’s history, which in turn affected the history of Colonial America deeply.
