King Philip’s War – a local perspective by David Brule

December 1, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

David Brule is a local historian deeply engaged in exploring and sharing the histories and persistence of Indigenous peoples in our middle Connecticut River Valley. He is the president of the Nolumbeka Project, Inc, the project coordinator of the on-going study of the massacre and counter-attack that occurred at the Peskeompskut falls (Turners Falls) on May 19, 1676. This study is in its 10th year and is funded by the Department of the Interior, National Park Service.

David is also a member of the Nehantic Tribal Council.

This presentation by David Brule will be centered on events that occurred during King Philip’s War in Northfield and in the region of Peskeompskut Falls (now encompassing the modern-day towns of Greenfield, Gill, Montague and Deerfield). The talk is intended to review the context of that war, to revisit local events that marked the history of our region, and to share the latest findings of the battlefield study now in progress
