King Philip’s War with Eric B. Schultz

March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

King Philip’s War–one of America’s first and costliest wars–began in 1675 as an Indian raid on several farms in Plymouth Colony, but quickly escalated into a full-scale war engulfing all of southern New England.

At once an in-depth history of this pivotal war and a guide to the historical sites where the ambushes, raids, and battles took place, King Philip’s War expands our understanding of American history and provides insight into the nature of colonial and ethnic wars in general. Through a careful reconstruction of events, first-person accounts, period illustrations, and maps, and by providing information on the exact locations of more than fifty battles, King Philip’s War is useful as well as informative. Students of history, colonial war buffs, those interested in Native American history, and anyone who is curious about how this war affected a particular New England town, will find important insights into one of the most seminal events to shape the American mind and continent.

Eric B. Schultz is the author of four books, including the Amazon bestsellers Innovation on Tap and King Philip’s War. He is the former CEO of Sensitech and a former CEO-partner of Ascent Ventures. His not-for-profit positions include Director of Old Colony Historical Society and Director Emeritus and former Chairman of both the Gettysburg Foundation and the New England Historic Genealogical Society/American
