In this episode, we cover how, in 1688 and 1689, Willem (again, leading what was totally not a Dutch invasion force) totally doesn’t conquer England. Note: he landed (shown artistically above); James II ended up fleeing to France; Willem became King William III. But, yeah, not a conquest at all.
In this episode, we start on James II’s attempt to abolish Connecticut, taking it through the summer of 1686 (hint: this first attempt failed for a really dumb reason). And we talk about a tug-of-war (no, not quite like the one pictured above) between Massachusetts and New York over who should get Connecticut if it ever were abolished.
In this episode, we say good-bye to William Leete and again greet Robert Treat. And we cover how, by 1685, Connecticut’s eastern and western borders were both finally pretty much solidified — except against Hamilton (shown above).
In this episode, we talk about some more little fights with Edmund Andross (including a bizarre regicides scare and a fight over Fisher’s Island, shown above). But, mostly, we continue the border fight with Rhode Island, including multiple arrests and an abduction by pirates.
