So you wonder how the Minute Men got their training? Here it is King Phillips War More life lost per pecentage of the Population than any other War fought by the Free Englishman soon to be Americans (And they paid their own way too). That's right even the Civil War. This is the Birth of Mrs Rowlandsons captivety and her subsequent best selling Diary Seeing her daughter and a lot of other settlers Killed. If only the Indians could of Got along? Parrallels the Middle East, all about the land just follow the money. Not much has changed with the Human Condition. We still fear one anothers differances and are more than willing to Kill over them in the name of our maker or our land. Here you have a chronological narrative which will shed much light on the many Golf Courses in the New England Area and how they got their name. Informative but I repeat only the True History Buffs for this one
