Captain Benjamin Church (c. 1639 - 1718) was an American carpenter, military officer, and Ranger during America's Colonial era, and specifically, King Philip's War. King Philip's War, sometimes called Metacom's War or Metacom's Rebellion, was an armed conflict between Native American inhabitants of present-day southern New England and English colonists and their Native American allies from 1675–1676. More than half of New England's ninety towns were assaulted by Native American warriors. The war is named after the main leader of the Native American side, Metacomet, Metacom, or Pometacom known to the English as "King Philip".
