The local towns of Warwick and Providence showed resentment toward the Rhode Island central government for its failure to adequately protect them. Both towns were destroyed in the spring of 1676; the Quaker colony government then reconsidered and appointed a captain for the colony as a whole, and set up a garrison in Providence. The Quaker governor signed the commission for Captain Cranston, and for the captain of the garrison. In June 1676, the legislature modified the 1673 Exemption: conscientious objectors would now have to pay fines in lieu of military service; the Exemption was fully restored in October. In August 1676, just after the death of King Philip, the Rhode Island government court‐ martialed four Indians and sentenced them to execution.
