also known as Lovewell’s War, Father Rale’s War, Greylock’s War, the Three Years War, the 4th Indian War or the Wabanaki-New England War of 1722–1725
Was a series of battles between British settlers of the three northernmost British colonies of North America of the time and the Wabanaki Confederacy (specifically Mi’kmaq, Maliseet, and Abenaki), who were allied with New France. The war took place variously in Nova Scotia, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts (which included present-day Maine and Vermont). The root cause of the conflict was tension over the ownership of these regions.
The treaty that ended the war marked a significant shift in European relations with the Mi’kmaq and Maliseet. For the first time a European power formally acknowledged that its dominion over Nova Scotia would have to be negotiated with the region’s indigenous inhabitants.
