ANOTHER NOTE: This could form the basis of a set of categories related to King Philip's War. We could have King Philip's War as the overarching category, then with sub categories for each of the captain's units?? Let me know if I can help. Smith-32867 07:39, 8 January 2016 (EST)

Note that the 17th century English name for what later became known as Turner's Falls is was just "the Falls". And we might want to consider including the native name for this conflict. One thing for sure, it wasn't really a fight -- it was a surprise attack on women, old people and children who were processing salmon for critically needed food as they had for centuries. Fighting men were nowhere near. Here's one effort at a balanced summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Turner%27s_Falls

Thanks for the information and the link to a balanced summary. The primary focus of this page is to list and link to the people who fought during King Philip's War, drawing from a specific publication that focuses on the white residents of European origin. That said, I think it's fine to add at least some links for people to learn more and get the fuller picture.
