Philip of Pokanoket.
Massasoit, Chief Sachem of the
Wanpanoags, died in 1660, leaving
two sons, Wamsutta and Metaconi.
Wamsutta drank too heavily of New
Eigland rum and (lied, but Metacom
lived long enough to make the New
l:nglanders remenhber him forever.
It is not by his name of Metacon
but by that of "Philip," or, as he was
vften called, "King Philip," that Mas
3asoit's younger son figures in history
-a name that was for near a genera
'ion a terror from Cape Cod to the
For thirteen years after he became
Thief Sachem of his tribe Philip
usied himself with the problem:
'How shall we red men get rid of the
people from across the great waters,
who have come here to drive us from
Dur homes and the graves of our
It was simply a matter of patriotism.
Prom all accounts there was no par
ticular reason why Philip should have
gone to war. Conditions in 1674,
wlen "King Philip's War" began, were
i.s fair for the Indians as they were
in 1660, the year of the death of his
rather. No contracts had been brok
en on the part of the white men, no
hostilities had been entered into by
the settlers against the natives, and
5o far as any one could see there
was no reason why the peace which
Massasoit had maintained for half a
2entury should not be indefinitely pro.
But Philip was a patriot, he loved
uis countr-y and his peopl)e; lie saw, as
plainly as lie saw the sun in the
tueavens, that that country was rapid
ly being taken away from them, and
that lisa people were slowly but surely
b,eing exter-minated, and lie resolved to

The "savage" chieftain stood exact
