HISTORY ROLL BACK today: Metacom (also called King Philip), intertribal chief of the Wampanoag, was killed, ending the conflict between Native Americans and English settlers known as King Philip’s War.
King Philip’s War, (1675–76)Bloodiest conflict between American colonists and Indians in 17th-century New England. By 1660 colonial settlers, no longer dependent on Indians for survival, had pushed into Indian territory in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. To protect their lands, the Wampanoag chief King Philip (Metacom) organized a federation of tribes, which in 1675 destroyed several frontier settlements. In retaliation the colonial militia burned Indian villages and crops. After Philip’s death in 1676, Indian resistance collapsed. An estimated 600 settlers and 3,000 Indians were killed in the conflict.
