King Phillip’s War was in 1675 and King Phillip was a local sachem names Metacom who planned an offensive attack against the Europeans. They even killed a group of nine English colonists in the town of Swansea before appearing in the Plymouth court and eventually being executed. More and more Indians heard about this and entered this war, this spurred military assistance within the colonies. In 1670 Native Americans comprises around 25% of the population with sadly went down to 10% only ten years later. 6.Describe the origins, consequences, and significance of Bacon’s Rebellion.Bacon’s Rebellion was fused by an argument over a simple pig. The Doeg Indians took some of Thomas Mathew’s pigs to settle a debt he owed them but then eventually refusedto pay them back. This rebellion ended up taking 14 lives just over a pig but tensions
were high between Europeans and Natives, therefore it was very easy to get violent with each other.7.What are some other important things you learned from this chapter that were not addressed by the above questions?Overall, I think this was the most interesting chapter so far because all the topics covered seemed very meaningful and all had a place in history. Learning about how all the colonies operated differently was very interesting, such as how religion was seen differently in colonies like New England. The Salem Witch Trials were also intriguing because I have always heard about them but not this deep, knowing about what actually happened now compared to just knowing the name I believe is very special.
