This book concludes where it opened, on the Northern Front of Wabanaki, where the war, and the negotiation of peace, continued long past the summer of 1676. This chapter focuses on a wave of raids that began on the Wabanaki coast, on the same day that Metacom was killed, as well as the efforts of multiple Penacook and Abenaki leaders to end the conflict through diplomacy. It highlights the complex context behind the “surprisal” at Cocheco, involving New Hampshire trader Richard Waldron, and explores the response of Indigenous leaders on the Kennebec River. The chapter concludes with the little-known treaties of Pemaquid and Casco Bay in 1677 and 1678, exploring a wide map of Indigenous communication, diplomacy, and alliance. This wider map also enables acknowledgment of the role of the colonies of New York and New France in both diplomacy and war.
