Westborough: Historical Society hosts “The Massacre at Mystic Fort” program

November 18, 2013

| Free

“The Massacre at Mystic Fort” (in Connecticut) will be the subject of a Westborough Historical Society program Nov. 18, at 7 p.m.

The Pequot massacre of 1637 was one of the most significant events of the Colonial period, serving as an ignition point and setting a standard for the countless tragic Native- and European-American conflicts that followed. Join Dr. Elizabeth Hall as she brings to life the compelling story of the Pequot people and the massacre at Mystic Fort, weaving in highlights of current archaeological investigations, Massachusetts Bay Colony and tribal involvement, historical descriptions of notable players, Indian spirituality, and the impact of European migration on New England tribal nations.

A prelude of live music performed on Native-American flute will set the mood for the evening.? The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at Sibley House, 13 Parkman St., Westborough.
