King Philip's War Presentation

Connecticut State Historian Walter Woodward, Ph.D. presents, "The Cost of Battles Not Fought: War and Rumors of War in Colonial New England.”

This thought-provoking and image-rich presentation looks at the role rumors played in the early wars between English settlers and the native people whose land they occupied. Focusing on the first and most shocking of these conflicts – the Pequot War of 1636-1637 – it argues that rumors, rather than actual conflict, account for the greatest expenditures of time, resources, and psychic energy in this, and probably most other, human conflicts.
