About John Mowry

John Morey served on a committee in Providence, Rhode Island to decide what to do with the Indians taken captive and being held there following King Philip's War. The meeting took place 2 days following the end of the war- August 14, 1676. It was decided the Indians should be sold as slaves, as the committee felt that would be more humane than execution. This link is for lesson plans for high school students, preparing them for material included in the educational state standards for Rhode Island. Included in the plans are copies of 2 documents resulting from the committee's work.
