Dave Koch, Assistant Professor of History at Housatonic Community College, presenting Indian Wars in Connecticut History in the Ehlers Room. Early in Connecticut's history, the state saw bloody battles, both between Native American tribes and between natives and colonists.

This talk will center on two major Indian wars of the period: the Pequot-Mohegan War and King Philip’s War.

It will also deal in part with the battle fought in Fairfield that ended the Pequot-Mohegan War in 1637.

The talk will present a lesser-known aspect of our region’s and state’s history, which in turn affected the history of Colonial America deeply.
