King Philip’s War saw much of its action take place in Rhode Island, despite the colony remaining neutral during the war. In an act to remain loyal to their neutrality, the government of the colony (which was run by the Society of Friends at the time of the war) enforced heavy regulations on to its people. Though this led to major property damage, few Rhode Islanders lost their lives during the conflict.
