PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Great Swamp Massacre was an early example of ethnic cleansing in Northeast America. 1,000 colonists, led by Josiah Winslow, left Wickford, Rhode island, on a bitter December morning, intent on capturing King Philip, who was rumored to have taken refuge in the neutral territory of the Narragansett. Metacom or Metacomet, was the name of the Wampanoag sachem, who led his people to rebellion against the English colonists of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. 300 to 600 women, children, and elderly Narragansett where massacred in the swamps near the campus and grounds of the University of Rhode Island, in present-day South Kingston, Rhode Island. The fifteen illustrated slides describe this historical event in a poem. Each slide contains a stanza at the top of the slide and relevant facts underneath. Primary and secondary documents are also used as illustrations.
