The Pequot War is one of the most significant events in early Colonial history, yet remains poorly understood. Several Battlefield Archaeology projects supported by the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program have uncovered new evidence about the English attack on the Pequot fortified village at Mystic on May 26, 1637, and the English retreat following the battle. Join Kevin McBride as he presents the results of the recent, and still ongoing, battlefield surveys in Mystic and Groton.
