The Backcountry is a region in what is in now the United States which specifically referred to the remote, undeveloped land behind the Appalachian border of the British Thirteen Colonies in the 1600s and 1700s. The region was home to many Native American tribes. The most well-known one was the Wampanoag tribe, which was known to have started King Philip's War in 1675.
