King Philip's War

King Philip's War was named after King Philip, chief of the Wampanoag Indians. The war began when the English executed three Native Americans for murder. It involved several Native American peoples and all the New England colonies before the tribes were defeated.

King Philip's War is sometimes called Metacom's War or Metacom's Rebellion
