What was the Pequot War and How long did the Pequot War last?

One of the most brutal conflicts in, colonial America was the Pequot War (1636-37), during which the English killed hundreds of Pequot Indians, a small tribe in present-day Connecticut.

The war nearly destroyed the Pequots. The few survivors tried to keep the tribe alive, but as time passed their population dwindled.

By 1930, the two branches of the tribe, the Mashantucket and the Paucatuck, had only about ten members each.
