KNOW YOUR AMERICA "King Phillip's War"

From post-World War II America, we go to pre-Revolutionary War New England... tell the tale of one of the lesser-known conflicts between colonists and natives.
"King Phillip's" real name was Metacomet.
Though Indians are portrayed as the antagonists, the English colonists provoked the conflict, as explained HERE.
This tale from Treasure Comics #8 (1946) was one of the earliest solo assignments by a young up-and-comer named Frank Frazetta, who went on to become one of the premier adventure/fantasy artists of all time!
Until next time...
