King William's War
King William's War
(1688–97, also known as the Second Indian War,[2] Father Baudoin's War,[3] Castin's War,[4] or the First Intercolonial War in French[5]) was the North American theater of the Nine Years' War (1688–97, also known as the War of the Grand Alliance or the War of the League of Augsburg). It was the first of six colonial wars (see the four French and Indian Wars, Father Rale's War
Father Rale's War
and Father Le Loutre's War) fought between New France

in southern Maine.[7]:27 [8][9] According to the terms of the 1697 Treaty of Ryswick
Treaty of Ryswick
that ended the Nine Years' War, the boundaries and outposts of New France, New England, and New York remained substantially unchanged. The war was largely caused by the fact that the treaties and agreements that were reached at the end of King Philip's War (1675-1678) were not adhered to.[10] In addition, the English were alarmed that the Indians were receiving French or maybe Dutch aid. The Indians preyed on the English and their fears, by making it look as though they were with the French. The French were played as well, as they thought the Indians were working with the English. These occurrences, in addition to the fact that the English perceived the Indians as their subjects, despite the Indians' unwillingness to submit, eventually led to two conflicts, one of which was King William's War.[11]

North America
at the end of the 17th century[edit] The English settlers were more than 154,000 at the beginning of the war, outnumbering the French 12 to 1.[12] However, they were divided in multiple colonies along the Atlantic coast, which were unable to cooperate efficiently, and they were engulfed in the Glorious Revolution creating tension among the colonists.[13] In addition, the English lacked military leadership and had a difficult relationship with their Iroquois
Iroquois
allies.[13][14] New France
New France
was divided into three entities: Acadia
Acadia
on the Atlantic coast; Canada along the Saint Lawrence River
Saint Lawrence River
and up to the Great Lakes; and Louisiana from the Great Lakes
Great Lakes
to the Gulf of Mexico, along the Mississippi River.[15] The French population amounted to 14,000 in 1689.[15] Although the French were vastly outnumbered, they were more politically unified and contained a disproportionate number of adult males with military backgrounds.[13] Realizing their numerical inferiority, they developed good relationships with the indigenous people in order to multiply their forces and made effective use of hit-and-run tactics.[13] Causes of the war[edit] For further details on the war's European causes, see Nine Years' War and Glorious Revolution. England's Catholic King James II was deposed at the end of 1688 in the Glorious Revolution, after which Protestants William III and Mary II took the throne. William joined the League of Augsburg
League of Augsburg
in its war against France (begun earlier in 1688), where James had fled. In North America, there was significant tension between New France

and the northern English colonies, which had in 1686 been united in the Dominion of New England. New England

Kennebec River
(Norridgewock); one further north on the Penobscot River

New England, Acadia
Acadia
and Newfoundland Theatre[edit] The New England, Acadia
Acadia
and Newfoundland Theatre of the war is also known as Castin's War[4] and Father Jean Baudoin's War.[3] In April 1688, Governor Andros plundered Castine's home and village on Penobscot Bay
Penobscot Bay
(Castine, Maine).[7]:607 Later in August, the English raided the French village of Chedabouctou. In response, Castin and the Wabanaki Confederacy
Wabanaki Confederacy
engaged in the Northeast Coast Campaign of 1688 along the New England/ Acadia
Acadia
border. They began August 13, 1688 at New Dartmouth (Newcastle), killing a few settlers. A few days later they killed two people at Yarmouth in the first battle. At Kennebunk, in the fall of 1688, members of the Confederacy killed two families. The following spring, in June 1689, several hundred Abenaki and Pennacook
Pennacook
Indians under the command of Kancamagus and Mesandowit raided Dover, New Hampshire, killing more than 20 and taking 29 captives, who were sold into captivity in New France. In June, they killed four men at Saco. In response to these raids, a company of 24 men was raised to search for the bodies and pursue the natives. They were forced to return after they lost a quarter of their men in conflicts with the natives.[20] In August 1689, Jean-Vincent d'Abbadie de Saint-Castin
Jean-Vincent d'Abbadie de Saint-Castin
and Father Louis-Pierre Thury[1] led an Abenaki war party that captured and destroyed the fort at Pemaquid (in present-day Bristol, Maine). The fall of Pemaquid was a significant setback to the English. It pushed the frontier back to Casco (Falmouth), Maine.[21]:81 New England
New England
retaliated for these raids by sending Major Benjamin Church to raid Acadia. During King William's War, Church led four New England raiding parties into Acadia
Acadia
(which included most of Maine) against the Acadians
Acadians
and members of the Wabanaki Confederacy. On the first expedition into Acadia, on September 21, 1689, Church and 250 troops defended a group of English settlers trying to establish themselves at Falmouth (present-day Portland, Maine). The tribes of the Wabanaki Confederacy
Wabanaki Confederacy
killed 21 of his men, but Church's defense was successful and the natives retreated.[22]:33 Church then returned to Boston leaving the small group of English settlers unprotected. The following spring over 400 French and native troops, under the leadership of Castin, destroyed Salmon Falls (present-day Berwick, Maine), then returned to Falmouth and massacred all the English settlers in the Battle of Fort Loyal. When Church returned to the village later that summer he buried the dead.[23]:175–176 The fall of Fort Loyal (Casco) led to the near depopulation of Maine. Native forces were then able to attack New Hampshire frontier without reprisal.[21]:82 Battle of Port Royal (1690)[edit] Main article: Battle of Port Royal (1690) The New Englanders, led by Sir William Phips, retaliated by attacking Port Royal, the capital of Acadia. The Battle of Port Royal began on May 9, 1690.[24]:82 Phips arrived with 736 New England
New England
men in seven English ships. Governor de Meneval fought for two days and then capitulated. The garrison was imprisoned in the church, and Governor de Meneval was confined to his house. The New Englanders levelled what was begun of the new fort.[25]:38 The residents of Port Royal were imprisoned in the church and administered an oath of allegiance to the King.[25]:39 Phips left, but warships from New York City
New York City
arrived in June which resulted in more destruction.[24]:82 The seamen burned and looted the settlement, including the parish church.[25]:40 The New Englanders left again, and Villebon, the Governor of Acadia, moved the capital to safer territory inland at Fort Nashwaak
Fort Nashwaak
(present-day Fredericton, New Brunswick). Fort Nashwaak

remained the capital until after the war, when Port Royal was restored as the capital in 1699.[25]:45

Baron de St Castin

In Church's second expedition to Acadia, he arrived with 300 men at Casco Bay
Casco Bay
on 11 September 1690. His mission was to relieve the English Fort Pejpescot (present day Brunswick, Maine), which had been taken by the Wabanaki Confederacy.[23]:179–180 He went up the Androscoggin River to Fort Pejepscot.[22]:66 From there he went 40 miles (64 km) upriver to Livermore Falls and attacked a native village. Church's men shot three or four native men when they were retreating. Church discovered five English captives in the wigwams. Church butchered six or seven natives and took nine prisoners.[22]:67 A few days later, in retaliation, the members of the Wabanaki Confederacy attacked Church at Cape Elizabeth on Purpooduc Point, killing 7 of his men and wounding 24 others.[22]:69 On September 26, Church returned to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. During King William's War, when the town of Wells contained about 80 houses and log cabins strung along the Post Road, it was attacked on June 9, 1691, by about 200 Native Americans commanded by the sachem Moxus. But Captain James Converse and his militia successfully defended Lieutenant Joseph Storer's garrison, which was surrounded by a gated palisade. Another sachem, Madockawando, threatened to return the next year "and have the dog Converse out of his den".[26] As the natives withdrew, they went to York off Cape Neddick and boarded a vessel, killing most of the crew. They also burned a hamlet.[20] In early 1692, an estimated 150 Abenakis commanded by officers of New France returned to York, killing about 100 of the English settlers and burning down buildings in what would become known as the Candlemas Massacre. Church's third expedition to Acadia
Acadia
during the war was in 1692 when he raided Penobscot (present-day Indian Island, Maine) with 450 men.[23]:212 Church and his men then went on to raid Taconock (Winslow, Maine).[23]:214 In 1693, New England
New England
frigates attacked Port Royal again, burning almost a dozen houses and three barns full of grain.[25]:43 On July 18, 1694, French soldier Claude-Sébastien de Villieu with about 250 Abenakis from Norridgewock
Norridgewock
under command of their sagamore (paramount chief), Bomazeen (or Bomoseen) raided the English settlement of Durham, New Hampshire, in the "Oyster River Massacre". In all, the French and native force killed 45 inhabitants and took 49 captive, burning half the dwellings, including five garrisons. They also destroyed crops and killed livestock, causing famine and destitution for the survivors. Siege of Pemaquid (1696)[edit] Main article: Siege of Pemaquid (1696)

Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville

In 1696, New France
New France
and the tribes of the Wabanaki Confederacy, led by St. Castine and Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville, returned and fought a naval battle in the Bay of Fundy before moving on to raid Pemaquid, Maine. After the Siege of Pemaquid (1696), d'Iberville led a force of 124 Canadians, Acadians, Mi'kmaq and Abanakis in the Avalon Peninsula Campaign. They destroyed almost every English settlement in Newfoundland, over 100 English were killed, many times that number captured, and almost 500 deported to England or France.[24]:84 In retaliation, Church went on his fourth expedition to Acadia
Acadia
and carried out a retaliatory raid against Acadian communities on the Isthmus of Chignecto
Isthmus of Chignecto
and Fort Nashwack (present-day Fredericton, New Brunswick), which was then the capital of Acadia.[23]:215 He led his troops personally in killing inhabitants of Chignecto, looting their household goods, burning their houses and slaughtering the livestock. Quebec and New York Theatre[edit] Also in August 1689, 1,500 Iroquois, seeking revenge for Governor General Denonville's actions, attacked the French settlement at Lachine. Count Frontenac, who replaced Denonville as governor general, later attacked the Iroquois
Iroquois
village of Onondaga. New France
New France
and its Indian allies then attacked English frontier settlements in early 1690, most notably at Schenectady in New York. This was followed up by two expeditions. One, on land under Connecticut provincial militia general Fitz-John Winthrop, targeted Montreal; the other, led by Sir William Phips, targeted Quebec. Winthrop's expedition failed due to disease and supply issues, and Phips was defeated in the Battle of Quebec. The Quebec and Port Royal expeditions were the only major New England offensives of King William's War; for the remainder of the war the English colonists were primarily engaged in defensive operations, skirmishes and retaliatory raids. The Iroquois
Iroquois
Five Nations suffered from the weakness of their English allies.[27]:290 In 1693 and 1696, the French and their Indian allies ravaged Iroquois
Iroquois
towns and destroyed crops while New York colonists remained passive. After the English and French made peace in 1697, the Iroquois, now abandoned by the English colonists, remained at war with New France until 1701,[27]:291 when a peace was agreed at Montreal

The war also served as a backdrop for an ongoing economic war between French and English interests in Arctic North America. The Hudson's Bay Company had established trading outposts on James Bay
James Bay
and the southern reaches of Hudson Bay
Hudson Bay
by the early 1680s. In a series of raids, beginning with the so-called Hudson Bay
Hudson Bay
expedition (1686), organized by Governor Denonville and continuing through the time of the Nine Years' War (1688-1697), most of these outposts, including Moose Factory, York Factory
York Factory
and Fort Albany, were taken by French raiders, primarily led by Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville. But the French forces were small, and their hold on the captured posts quite weak — York Factory
York Factory
was recaptured by the English in 1695. In 1697, in the Battle of Hudson's Bay, one of the war's major naval battles, d'Iberville, with a single ship, defeated three English ships and went on to again capture York Factory. Aftermath[edit] The Treaty of Ryswick
Treaty of Ryswick
signed in September 1697 ended the war between the two colonial powers, reverting the colonial borders to the status quo ante bellum. The peace did not last long;[28] and within five years, the colonies were embroiled in the next phase of the colonial wars, Queen Anne's War. After their settlement with France in 1701, the Iroquois
Iroquois
remained neutral in that conflict, never taking part in active hostilities against either side. Tensions remained high between the English and the tribes of the Wabanaki Confederacy, who again fought with the French in Queen Anne's War, with conflict characterized by frequent raids in Massachusetts, including one on Groton in 1694, in which children were kidnapped, and the Deerfield Massacre in 1704, in which more than 100 captives were taken north to Montreal
Montreal
for ransom or adoption by Mohawk and French. By the end of the war, natives were successful in killing more than 700 English and capturing over 250 along the Acadia/ New England
New England
border.[29] The Ryswick treaty was unsatisfactory to representatives of the Hudson's Bay Company. Since most of its trading posts in Hudson Bay had been lost to the French before the war began, the rule of status quo ante bellum meant that they remained under French control. The company recovered its territories at the negotiating table when the Treaty of Utrecht
Treaty of Utrecht
ended Queen Anne's War. Scholars debate whether the war was a contributing factor to the Salem witch trials. King William's War
King William's War
as well as King Philip's War (1675–78) led to the displacement of many refugees in Essex County. The refugees carried with them fears of the Indians, which is debated to have led to fears of witchcraft, especially since the devil was arguably closely associated with Indians and magic. Of course, Cotton Mather also wrote that it was going to lead to an age of sorrow and is arguably a proponent in leading Salem into the witchcraft crisis of 1692. Scholars debate this theory and one scholar, Jenny Hale Pulsipher, maintains that King William's War
King William's War
was more of a cause.[10] Other scholars that have written on the theory of the wars being a leading cause of the Salem Witchcraft
