This war mostly involved Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Most men who served in King Philip's War were between the ages of 16 and 60, born between 1615 and 1660, though some were born as early as 1605 or as late as 1664.


King Philip's War was fought between colonists in Massachusetts and Connecticut and the Wampanoag Indians led by Metacom and their allies, the Nipmuck and Narragansett Indians.  Metacom was called King Philip by the colonists.
