K1P - King Philip's War Memorial Weekend Aug 8-14, 2019. King Philip's War was an armed conflict in 1675–1678 between Indian inhabitants of New England and New England colonists. It is considered by many to be the deadliest war in the history of American colonization. In the space of little more than a year, 12 of the region's towns were destroyed and many more were damaged, the economy of Plymouth and Rhode Island Colonies was all but ruined and their population was decimated, losing one-tenth of all men available for military service. Historians estimate that, as a result of King Philip's War, the Indian population of southern New England was reduced by about 40 to 80 percent. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Philip's_War ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This Special Event Station is being sponsored by the Outdoor Enthusiasts Amateur Radio Club N1KC.
