Description (old)

.  Join us as local author Ed Lodi discusses his new book, The Pequot War.

In 1637, the Puritans waged a genocidal war against the Pequots, the most powerful tribe in Southern New England.  Their objective was to annihilate the Pequots and to destroy them as a people.  What, if anything, had the Pequots done to incur the wrath of the Puritans?  Why did the Narragansetts and Mohegans side with the Puritans?  What role did the Dutch play in the war?  Lodi will answer these and other questions, and will describe the major battles of the war, including the massacre at the Pequot fort in Mystic, CT.

Lodi will answer questions during and after his talk, and a book signing will follow the presentation.  The talk is free and open to the public, thanks to the support of the Friends of the Middleborough Public Library.
