This map, the first printed in England's American colonies, illustrates the geographic extent of King Philip's War (1675-1676). Oriented with west at the top, the Map of New-England shows the pattern of colonial settlement moving from the Atlantic coast inland to the Connecticut River valley. Tribal names ("Nipmuck") and locations ("Mount-hope," Philip's village) indicate the Native presence. Numbers on the map identify villages that had experienced attacks during the conflict.
