On August 28, 1676, Captain Benjamin Church and his group of colonial soldiers captured Anawan, the War Chief of the Pocasset People. He was an old man at the time, and a chief captain of Metacomet, who had been captured and killed by the colonists two weeks earlier. The capture of Anawan marked the final event in King Philip's War.
