 King Philip’s War began on June 24, 1675, when a band of his Wampanoag Indians, attacked several isolated homesteads near Swansea, then laid siege to the town, destroying it and killing several people, which resulted in a general uprising that spread through New England. The war lasted fourteen months and ended with the death of Metacomet (aka King Philip) the chieftain and son of Massassoit.
