Soldiers in King Philip’s War - Main Page

An old privateer who led a successful campaign against pirates, he was put in charge of organizing an independent company of Volunteers, many of whom were his old privateers as well as some released pirates. Bodge found that many were also apprentices, servants, boys not yet enrolled in the militia; he found a sprinkling of Frenchmen. While only 75 are listed below, more went with him. Several are credited with service under other captains. Credited with military service in June & July 1675 at Mt. Hope:[1]
