The Captive's Lament

Mary Rowlandson’s Removes and Weetamoo’s Path 

This map highlights the Native trails, waterways, towns and territories through which the Wampanoag leader Weetamoo and the English captive Mary Rowlandson traveled in the winter and spring of 1676, as described in The Sovereignty and Goodness of God: A Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson (1682). Readers may also view an interactive storymap of Rowlandson’s captivity narrative, with contemporary images of key locations. Follow the pages in this path for more images and information on the places that Mary Rowlandson described as “removes” — travel that took her farther from her home and deeper into Native space. At any time, you can return to this map by clicking "The Captive's Lament" Path at the top of the page.
