The Public History of King Philip's War: A Panel Discussion

View the video of this program

Presented by the Wayland Library, the Wayland Historical Society and First Parish in Wayland

 
"The Sudbury Fight," "King Philip's Woods," "Metacomet Way." What comes to mind when you hear these terms and place names? What really was King Philip's War and how do we understand it's significance in our history?
 
Join us for a panel discussion on the history and impact of the violence, how it has been remembered through memorials and markers, and recent efforts to center a Native American perspective in our public memory of King Philip's War.
