Until I Have No CountryNY Times bestselling author Michael Tougias will give an illuminating slide presentation at the Village on the war between the Colonists and Native Americans in 1675-76. Tougias is the author of the acclaimed Until I Have No Country (A novel of King Philip's War), and co-author with Eric Schultz of King Philip's War: The History and Legacy of America's Forgotten Conflict.

Slides include battle sites, period sketches, historic markers, maps, and suggestions for visiting road-side history.
