  • YEET!
  • July 20th 1636, the Pequot tribe killed respected English trader, John Oldham and his crew. (This triggered the English settlers)
  • When the English found out, they used a Narragansett Indian to translate conversations with the Pequot tribe. The Englishmen though the Indians were "dancing around" the truth and were stalling.
  • May 26 1637, The Mystic Massacre occurred. The Englishmen entered their fortifications, they were going to "sneak attack." Upon entering, they realized they were outnumbered and started fires to fend the Indians off. These fires quickly took to the wigwams, where Indians were sleeping.
  • As the Indians tried to escape, the Englishmen shot and sworded them. Men, women, and children. Of the 500 Pequot Indians, only 14 survived. 7 escaped, and 7 were taken prisoner.
  • In September 1637, the seven prisoners of the Pequot Indians were sold into slavery.
