Joseph Rowlandson was set on fire, and most of its occupants were slaughtered—more than 30 people. Rowlandson's wife Mary was taken prisoner, and afterward wrote a best-selling captivity narrative of her experiences. Many of the community's other houses were destroyed before the Indians retreated northward. The spring of marked the high point for the combined tribes when they attacked Plymouth Plantation on March The town withstood the assault, but the Indians had demonstrated their ability to penetrate deep into colonial territory.
They attacked three more settlements; Longmeadow near Springfield , Marlborough, and Simsbury were attacked two weeks later. They killed Captain Pierce  and a company of Massachusetts soldiers between Pawtucket and the Blackstone's settlement. Several colonial men were tortured and buried at Nine Men's Misery in Cumberland as part of the Indians' ritual torture of enemies.
They also burned the settlement of Providence to the ground on March At the same time, a small band of Indians infiltrated and burned part of Springfield while the militia was away. The settlements within the modern-day state of Rhode Island became a literal island colony for a time as the settlements at Providence and Warwick were sacked and burned, and the residents were driven to Newport and Portsmouth on Rhode Island. The Connecticut River towns had thousands of acres of cultivated crop land known as the bread basket of New England, but they had to limit their plantings and work in large armed groups for self-protection.
The small towns of Northfield , Deerfield , and several others were abandoned as the surviving settlers retreated to the larger towns. The towns of the Connecticut colony were largely unharmed in the war, although more than Connecticut militia died in their support of the other colonies. The town was surprised by Indian raiders at dawn, but security precautions limited the damage to unoccupied homesteads.
Reinforcements that arrived from nearby towns were drawn into ambushes by the Indians; Captain Samuel Wadsworth lost his life and half of a man militia in such an ambush.mta-sts.waahhh.com.my/3568-liberar-1974.php

Afterwards, Indians made their way through much of Sudbury, but they were held off by John Grout and a handful of men until colonial reinforcements arrived to help in the defense. On May 18, , Captain William Turner of the Massachusetts Militia and a group of about militia volunteers mostly minimally trained farmers attacked an Indian fishing camp at Peskeopscut on the Connecticut River , now called Turners Falls, Massachusetts.
The colonists killed — Indians in retaliation for earlier Indian attacks against Deerfield and other settlements and for the colonial losses in the Battle of Bloody Brook. Turner and nearly 40 of the militia were killed during the return from the falls. The colonists defeated an attack at Hadley on June 12, with the help of their Mohegan allies, scattering most of the Indian survivors into New Hampshire and farther north. Later that month, a force of Indians was routed near Marlborough, Massachusetts. Combined forces of colonial volunteers and their Indian allies continued to attack, kill, capture, or disperse bands of Narragansetts , Nipmucs , and Wampanoags as they tried to plant crops or return to their traditional locations.
The colonists granted amnesty to those who surrendered or who were captured and showed that they had not participated in the conflict. Captives who had participated in attacks on the many settlements were hanged, enslaved, or put to indentured servitude , depending upon the colony involved. Metacomet's allies began to desert him, and more than had surrendered to the colonists by early July. Metacomet took refuge in the Assowamset Swamp below Providence, and the colonists formed raiding parties of militia and Indian allies.
He was shot and killed by an Indian named John Alderman on August 12, His head was displayed in Plymouth for a generation. He was an old man at the time, and a chief captain of Metacomet. His capture marked the final event in King Philip's War, as he was also beheaded. French interests in Maine originated in the fur trade and the sale of fish, both to France. The French colonies in North America were primarily interested in trade and not in creating large cities. Instead, they preferred to convert the Indian population to Catholicism, or else to limit their contact with the Indians to trade.
Tide of Darkness
As English presence increased on the southern coast of Maine, the French Jesuits paid many of the area's tribes for the scalps of Protestant or English settlers, especially the Abenaki. Two other mission towns were established, one based around Castine, Maine established by Baron de St. Castin and one on the St. Francis River between New Brunswick and Maine. The more permanent English settlers moved northward from the colony of Massachusetts Bay, most of them Puritans who were unhappy with the political climate in Massachusetts Bay.
Constant friction over many issues became the reason for many Abenaki raids in southern Maine, specifically over the issue of fishing rights for cod. Up until , however, fighting had been limited to minor skirmishes that were more about the destruction of supplies than murder.
What is thought to have been the first action in Maine came when a man militia gathered at Falmouth, Maine in and sailed to an Indian village, thought to be a part of the Abenaki, with a single sloop towing shallops. The Indians drove them off and took the shallops from them. Later that month, the tribe crossed the Saco River in the captured shallops and attacked the settlement of Winter Harbor.
Little damage was caused, and similar raids were conducted against Wells and Falmouth later that year.
The ultimate cause leading to war was the ruling by the Massachusetts General Court in making it illegal to sell firearms, powder, or rounds to the area's tribes. New England tribes had grown dependent on the musket for hunting, and the English colonists' remaining Indian allies switched to the French side. The French encouraged them to raid the English settlements, due to the tension in Europe at the time. Much of the northern fighting was centered around raids meant to destroy property and infrastructure rather than to kill people.
The lack of population on both sides meant that large battles were out of the question initially. For the majority of the war, ship combat mostly involved muskets, and the infantry relied more on melee fighting than guns. Later in the war, reinforcements from southern New England introduced modern and well-equipped ships and infantry, turning the tide permanently. This was also the first time that Colonial Rangers were used, acting as guides and scouts for the main party of militia.

Much of the fighting was also conducted on the coast in small boats and ships. Three major campaigns one each year were launched by the Indians in , , and , most of which led to a massive colonial response. Waldron sent forces so far north that he attacked the Mi'kmaq in Acadia. Throughout the campaigns, a Wabanaki leader named Mugg Hegone repeatedly attacked towns such as Black Point Scarborough , Wells, and Damariscove , building an Indian navy out of the approximately 40 sloops and a dozen ton ships previously armed by militia. Many of Maine's towns were burned, and most of the population left.
Maine's fishing industry was completely destroyed by the Wabanaki flotilla.

Records from Salem, Maine reported 20 ketches stolen and destroyed in one raid. Mugg Hegone was killed on his third raid on Black Point. With their leader gone, most of the Indian flotilla broke up and was hunted down by New York privateers and Royal Navy vessels. Colonial responses to raids generally failed in both their objectives and accomplishments. Few Indians were lost, and only two French Jesuits were reported killed. The colonists were much more successful in the later campaigns when they had the advantage in weapons.
Their most successful ventures were a surprise attack near Dover, New Hampshire , in which more than Indians were captured, and in the defense of Pemaquid, Maine from the Indian flotilla. One of the most notorious raids was in August when Indians attacked a settlement at the Sheepscot River near Merrymeeting Bay in Maine.
Sir William Phips rescued local settlers by bringing them on board his vessel, abandoning his cargo of lumber. He was financially ruined when the Indians destroyed the shipyard and his intended cargo, although he was recognized as a hero in Boston. By the end of the war, the Northern Campaigns saw approximately settlers die, Maine's fishing economy gone, and the Indians maintaining power in eastern and northern Maine. There is not an accurate account of the number of Indians who died, but it is thought to be between and The war in southern New England largely ended with Metacomet's death.
More than 1, colonists and 3, Indians had died. Members of the sachem's extended family were placed among colonists in Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut. Other survivors joined western and northern tribes and refugee communities as captives or tribal members. Some of the Indian refugees returned to southern New England.
Sir Edmund Andros had been appointed governor of New York in by the Duke of York , who claimed that his authority extended as far north as Maine's northern boundary. He negotiated a treaty with some of the northern Indian bands in Maine on April 12, Metacomet's Pennacook allies had made a separate peace with the colonists as the result of early battles that are sometimes identified as part of King Philip's War.
The tribe nevertheless lost members and eventually its identity as the result of the war.
