Deerfield 1704

I really like this image - I think we have had it on this blog already but why not publish it again. There is a really good book the Unredeemed Captive on the Deerfield raid - worth a read.

  1. An even better book on the Deerfield Raid is Evan Haefeli and Kevin Sweeney's Captors and Captives: The 1704 French and Indian Raid on Deerfield. (UMass Press, 2003) which examines the raid from the perspectives of the different participants.

    Sweeney and Haefeli followed up this book with a collection of primary accounts (including the oral histories from native peoples): Captive Histories: English, French, and Native Narratives of the 1704 Deerfield Raid (UMass Press, 2006).
