About Attawanhood "Chief Joshua" Uncas

At the start of King Philip's war, Uncas was too old to take active part but his son, Owaneco, with several hundred Mohegans rendered valuable assistance to the colonists in their fight against the unfriendly Indians. Attawanhood (Joshua), another son, with a band of thirty Indians scoured the woods in the route of the retreating foe, and took active part in the conflict.

Major John Mason, one of the original founders of Norwich, refers to Uncas, "He was a great friend and did us much service".
