News from America, by Capt. John Underwood

Updated: Feb 7, 2020

It's not often you find a book written by your 10th great-grandfather, but if you are a descendant of Capt. John Underhill, you are in luck! A book he wrote in 1638 called "Newes from America, or, a New and Experimental Discoverie of New England, containing a true relation of their war-like proceedings these two years last past, with a Figure of the Indian Fort, or Palizado", gives his account of the conflicts between the Native American Indians and the colonists of Massachusetts Bay.


This illustration from the book illustrates the battle against the Pequot fort.
