The Pequots made a statement when they attacked Wethersfield. The Englishmen responded. It took a while for them to get on the same page, but eventually they did. Massachusetts Bay was the first to declare war, but Connecticut was the first to truly mobilize. They had no choice. The war would be fought on their soil. As the initial party under John Mason was leaving for Saybrook, they were joined by an unlikely group. Uncas arrived with a motley band of various native groups with the intent to assist the English...he had his own motives...but he proved himself to be a valuable asset and friend...many times over.
