During winter 1675, the English were able to defeat the natives in the "Great Swamp fight", more than thousand Indians were killed. Captain Benjamin Church challenged that he would not live King Philip. The next summer Captain Church with a lot of "Brisk Waterbridge Lads" chased King Philip and his men. He was able to take many of them as prisoners. Among those there were King Philip's wife and his little son. When Philip heard this he said, "My heart breaks; Iam ready to die." He had a good reason for saying so. It was the custom in England on those days to sell the prisoners of war as slaves. Accordingly, the mother and the son were sent to Bermuda Islands, there they worked to death under the hot sun and the lash of the slave driver's help.
King Philip was hunted like a wild beast. When he had come to see his home at Mount Hope, he was found by Captain Church. Captain Church shot him down to death. His head and hands were cut off and his head was carried to Plymouth. It was set up on the pole and stood there for twenty years.
King Philip's death brought the war to an end. It has lasted over a year from the early summer of 1675 to the later part of 1676.EFFECTS OF THE WAR
