The yearlong war between the Wampanoag tribe (under Metacom, or "King Philip" to the English) and English settlers hungry for land came at a staggering cost: an estimated 3000 natives and 800 English dead, the tribe all but destroyed, and the Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay colonies nearly bankrupt.

This program employs primary source illustrations and writings, reenactments shot on location, and commentary by historians (many of Native American descent) to illuminate the background and conduct of the bloodiest conflict per capita in American history; it also analyzes how the victors shaped the way in which the war was remembered for hundreds of years. An online guide includes pre- and postviewing questions, a short-answer worksheet, and further reading.
