The colonial period of US history was rife with military conflict between European immigrants and Native Americans/Indians, among rival European imperial powers, among groups of European settlers, and among groups of Indians. Little has been written about conflict among Indians because sources of information concerning them are so few. The remaining three types of warfare often overlapped as settlers of European origins, Indians, and imperial governments all sought allies for support in their wars. In addition, tensions with Indians and differing views on Indian policy contributed to the outbreak of violence among colonists.
