Join Us for the Ranger Walkabout on Thursday, July 10: Nine Men's Misery: King Phillip's War & the Blackstone Valley

King Phillip's War (1675-76) was fought between the Nipmuc, Wampanoag, and Narragansett Nations against the recently arrived English settlers. This war stretched across the Blackstone Valley, much of southeastern New England, and up into New Hampshire.

Join the National Park Service to learn about this conflict, and visit the earliest veterans' memorial established in the United States. This program includes a trail walk, please wear sturdy walking shoes. Walk will begin at the gazebo behind the Cumberland Library.

Parking: Plenty of parking is available in the Cumberland Public Library parking lot, 1464 Diamond Hill Road, Cumberland, RI.
