After the subsequent Fairfield Swamp Fight in July 1637, the English sold captured Pequot as slaves or servants and took their lands. The Pequot numbers were so diminished that they ceased to be a tribe in most senses. Many of the remaining Pequot were to be absorbed into the Mohegan and Narragansett tribes and were not allowed to refer to themselves as Pequot. In the later 20th century, Pequot descendants revived the tribe, achieving federal recognition and settlement of some land claims.
A statue of Major John Mason is on the Palisado Green in Windsor, Connecticut, The statue was originally placed at the intersection of Pequot Avenue and Clift Street in Mystic, Connecticut, near what was thought to be one of the original Pequot forts. The statue remained there for 103 years. After studying the sensitivity and appropriateness of the statue's location near the historic massacre of Pequot people, a commission chartered by Groton, Connecticut voted to have it relocated. In 1993, The State of Connecticut relocated the statue to its current setting.
