Enemies of the Bay Colony


Philip Ranlet

Enemies of the Bay Colony is a re-evaluation of the following foes of the Puritan Massachusetts Bay Colony: Thomas Morton of Merry Mount, who erected a maypole; Samuel Maverick, an enemy of Puritan intolerance; Anne Hutchinson, who sparked the Antinomian crisis; the important Indian leader, King Philip; Sir Edmund Andros, the governor of the hated Dominion of New England; Joseph Dudley, a supporter of royal government; and Benjamin Colman, the minister of the reform-minded Brattle Street Church.
