Spoilers (Puzzle Context)

Within the year, Massasoit had need of his allies. A renegade sachem named Corbitant began to undermine Massasoit's leadership. Corbitant worked to turn the people of Nemasket against Massasoit in the Pokanoket village of Nemasket, now the site of Middleborough, Massachusetts, about 14 miles (23 km) west of Plymouth. When Squanto and one of Massasoit's advisors arrived to resolve the problem, Squanto was taken captive.

The Pilgrim response was immediate.A party of ten men, under the leadership of Myles Standish, set out to find and execute Corbitant. Arriving at the village, they planned and executed a night attack, bursting into the dwelling the renegade chief was supposedly sleeping in. While they didn't find Corbitant, they made their point.

Nine local sachems arrived in Plymouth the following month to sign a treaty that pledged their loyalty to King James.
