After the failure of the Saybrook Conference, the Pequots were even more isolated. Their options were limited. They were victims of paranoia and covetousness. It seems nothing they did helped to advance their cause, or the cause of peace. The rumors of Pequot viciousness toward the English never materialized. What the Narragansetts did, and the English conclusion, demonstrates the Pequots were playing a game they would never be allowed to win...the true nature and rational of the murder of John Oldham may never be fully known. In this episode we will examine some of the facts that we do know of these events.
