Massachusetts was the first English colony to legalize slavery in 1641 and the colonists' desire for slaves shaped the major New England Indian wars. When the wartime conquest of Indians ceased, New Englanders turned to the courts to get control of their labor, or imported Indians, from Florida and the Carolinas, or simply claimed free Indians as slaves. Learn more about this on Saturday 10:30am, at the SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park.
