History

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.
