Meet the Author: Major Jason Warren
Learn about King Philip’s War through a modern military lens in this intriguing presentation by U.S. Army Major (Dr.) Jason Warren about his book, Connecticut Unscathed: Victory in the Great Narragansett War, 1675-1676. King Philip’s War, one of the bloodiest conflicts in American history, saw many towns in Rhode Island and Massachusetts destroyed, while Connecticut remained unscathed. The book refocuses Connecticut’s role in the war and discusses how the colony achieved success by establishing a policy of moderation towards the Native groups living within its borders. Major Warren lectures at 1:30, and signs books, 2:30-4:30, in the Research Library. $10 for lecture; Museum admission is not required.
