Thanks to the efforts of the Civil War veteran, genealogist, historian, and Unitarian clergyman George Madison Bodge (1841–1914), historians and genealogists have a better understanding of the conflict known as King Philip’s War (1675–1676). Based on his detailed analysis and transcriptions of countless pages of seventeenth-century records, Bodge’s Soldiers in King Philip’s War includes the official listing of Massachusetts soldiers and officers, sketches of the principal officers, and official lists of land granted to veterans and their heirs. This reprint of the 1906 (third) edition also includes a history of Indian conflicts in New England prior to King Philip’s War, an element that Bodge added to the second edition.
