Description

This volume presents a short, annotated reader of primary documents published during King Philip’s War. The central document is Daniel Gookin’s Doings and Sufferings of the Christian Indians in New England in the Years 1675, 1675, and 1677. This tract, in conjunction with a set of ancillary documents, will help readers understand how ideas about societal, and particularly religious, inclusivity changed in Puritan New England as a result of the war. A detailed introduction to Gookin and the War, a well as brief interpretations of the documents, provides instructors with a set of readings of unpublished archival documents that can serve as concrete examples to illustrate broad societal changes.
