King Philip's War: The History and Legacy of America's Forgotten Conflict

Nevertheless, the Native Americans suffered even greater losses in their pivotal struggle against the colonists. Devastated by disease and famine, the native peoples of southern New England were violently removed from their ancestral homelands, with thousands slain or sold into slavery.
