A Puritan, John Eliot emigrated from England and evangelized the Natives of Southern New England. He formed several Praying Towns for his Native Converts. Natick was the first. His missionary work was a success, but King Philip's War would ruin it.Meanwhile, a new population was brought to Massachusetts: the African Slaves. Their interaction with the Natives who survived King Philip's War would create a new demography in the colony. On their way to freedom, they will be helped by Massachusetts abolitionists like William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, and Henry Wilson, the Natick Cobbler, who after the Civil War would become Vice-President of the United States.
