  • The Massacre of Turner's Falls or Massacre of Grand Falls; also known as the Peskeompscut-Wissantinnewag Massacre, was an act of Genocide occurring on May 19, 1676, in the context of King Philip's War in what is present-day Gill and Greenfield, across from Turners Falls on the Connecticut River. The site whereupon the colonial-era genocide of mostly women and children occurred has in recent years been memorialized by the NRHP's establishment of a as the Riverside Archeological District at the approximate site of the slaughter. The unexpected war crime marked a turning point in the invasion of Indigenous lands by British Settlers, leading to the near-complete eradication of indigenous peoples, villages and cultures from the Connecticut River Valley, ultimately all of British America, and even the extinction of several distinct languages. A largely untrained, inexperienced militia force of 150-160 engaged in an initial massacre early in the morning around dawn, taking advantage of the native practice of the warriors sleeping in a separate camp during wartime about half a mile away, and began looting of the Peskeompskut camp, killing about 415 people. Conducting a fighting withdrawal after the counterattack through ambushes set by the Algonquian tribe's outnumbered warriors, resulting in the deaths of 38 militiamen (including William Turner †) and the wounding of an unknown number. This is how the town of Turners Falls got its name.
