520    While it lasted only sixteen months, King Philip's War 
       (1675-1676) was arguably one of the most significant of 
       the colonial wars that wracked early America. As the first
       major military crisis to directly strike one of the 
       Empire's most important possessions: the Massachusetts Bay
       Colony, King Philip's War marked the first time that 
       Massachusetts had to mobilize mass numbers of ordinary, 
       local men to fight. In this exhaustive social history and 
       community study of Essex County, Massachusetts's militia, 
       Kyle F. Zelner boldly challenges traditional 
       interpretations of who was called to serve during this 
       period. Drawing on muster and pay lists as well as 
       countless historical records, Zelner demonstrates that 
       Essex County's more upstanding citizens were often spared 
       from impressments, while the "rabble" - criminals, 
       drunkards, the poor- were forced to join active fighting 
       units, with town militia committees selecting soldiers who
       would be least missed should they die in action. Enhanced 
       by illustrations and maps, A Rabble in Arms shows that, 
       despite heroic illusions of a universal military 
       obligation, town fathers, to damaging effects, often 
       placed local and personal interests above colonial 
       military concerns
