Episode 28: The Mohegan-Narragansett war, part V

In this post, we cover relations with and among the Algonquians from 1656 until 1659, featuring some new bit players, like the Podunks. And we reintroduce John Winthrop, Jr. (pictured above), who will be a central figure in Connecticut politics for a while.

(And, no, the title of the episode isn’t a mistake; listen for an explanation.)

Episode 25: Rebels and traders with the enemy

In this episode, in 1653 and 1654, we talk about how the colonies fought (or, more accurately, didn’t fight) the First Anglo-Dutch War, including a boat chase and an interpreter hitting an Algonquian on his wolf’s tail with a sheathed sword. We also say good-bye to long-time Connecticut governor John Haynes.
