Pequot War
The Pequots lived in what is now Connecticut. In 1634, Indians killed John Stoen and eight companions. The Pequots were blamed, and agreed to a series of Puritan demands. In 1836, an English trader was killed by Narraganseett who fled into Pequot territory. When the Pequots refused to surrender them, the Massachusetts legislature drafted articles of war against the Pequot. They surrounded a Pequot fort on the Mystic river and set it afire. As many as 700 Indians were killed.
