Captan Perse & His Coragios Company

Reprints a manuscript poem by Philip Walker, inspired by King Philip's War (1675-1676). An introduction traces the history of Walker and the manuscript, and outlines the historiography of the war. The poem appears to be an early effort at creating an epic of colonial life, and Walker's language reflects the dialect of the time.
