Evan Haefeli and Kevin Sweeney have been adding to our understanding of both Williams's narrative and the raid on Deerfield for over a decade

Evan Haefeli and Kevin Sweeney have been adding to our understanding of both Williams's narrative and the raid on Deerfield for over a decade. Now they have followed up on their 2003 award-winning Deerfield study Captors and Captives with a most diverse and valuable collection of primary sources regarding the Deerfield raid of 1704. In Captive Histories, the duo continue in their quest to rethink the raid by providing a collection of sources that includes Williams’s famous narrative-indeed, no collection would. be complete without it-but places it, not as the centerpiece, but within.

Series: Native Americans of the Northeast. Not all of the captives taken at Deerfield in 1704 patiently awaited their redemption and return to New England

Series: Native Americans of the Northeast. Book Description: This volume draws together an unusually rich body of original sources that tell the story of the 1704 French and Indian attack on Deerfield, Massachusetts, from different vantage points. Not all of the captives taken at Deerfield in 1704 patiently awaited their redemption and return to New England. In the spring of 1705 three of them-Thomas Baker (1682–1753), Martin Kellogg (1686–1753), and Joseph Petty (1672–1746), along with another Deerfield man captured in October 1703, John Nims(1679–1762)-took matters into their own hands.

Amherst and Boston: University of Massachusetts Press, 2006. The combined French and Indian attack upon the western Massachusetts village of Deerfield in 1704 was, at the time, the most devastating assault upon an Anglo-American settlement since Metacomet's War (1675-76). However, it tends to be consumed in the overall narrative of imperial and frontier conflict that was Queen Anne's War (1702-13), which itself is far overshadowed by the so-called French and Indian War (17541763).

This volume draws together an unusually rich body of original sources that tell the story of the 1704 French and Indian attack on Deerfield, Massachusetts, from different vantage points. Texts range from one of the most famous early American captivity narratives, John Williams's The Redeemed Captive, to the records of French soldiers and clerics, to little-known Abenaki and Mohawk stories of the raid that emerged out of their communities' oral traditions. Evan Haefeli and Kevin Sweeney provide a general introduction, extensive annotations, and headnotes to each text.

Although the oft-reprinted Redeemed Captive stands at the core of this collection, it is juxtaposed to less familiar accounts of captivity composed by other Deerfield residents: Quentin Stockwell, Daniel Belding, Joseph Petty, Joseph Kellogg, and the teenaged Stephen Williams. Presented in their original form, before clerical editors revised and embellished their content to highlight religious themes, these stories challenge long-standing assumptions about classic Puritan captivity narratives.

The inclusion of three Abenaki and Mohawk narratives of the Deerfield raid is equally noteworthy, offering a rare opportunity not only to compare captors' and captives' accounts of the same experiences, but to do so with reference to different Native oral traditions. Similarly, the memoirs of French military officers and an excerpt from the Jesuit Relations illuminate the motivations behind the attack and offer fresh insights into the complexities of French-Indian alliances.

Taken together, the stories collected in this volume, framed by the editors' introduction and the assessments of two Native scholars, Taiaiake Alfred and Marge Bruchac, allow readers to reconstruct the history of the Deerfield raid from multiple points of view and, in so doing, to explore the interplay of culture and memory that shapes our understanding of the past.

  • Because of Eunice Williams, who was abducted by Mohawks at seven years old and who chose never to return (except for a couple of family visits) to white society, the 1704 raid in Deerfield, MA continues to fascinate readers. This important anthology collects versions of the event from New England Puritans, the French, the Indians, and the descendants of Eunice Williams.

  • The story of Deerfield continues with this outstanding copulatiion of original letters written by the captives.Many of these letters have yet to be published until now.This author team brings the reader closer to the 1704 raid than ever before,as we become caught up in the emotions of the captive person. As with their first book "Captors and Captives" they intertwine all three cultures so we see how complex those times were.I hope this collaboration continues with more research on the subject,for it brings us closer to our New England past.

  • Didn't read, got for my mother

  • In 1704, a French and Indian coalition raided the frontier village of Deerfield, Massachusetts, destroying property, killing 50 of the inhabitants, and kidnapping 112. Forced to march in the dead of winter to Canada, many of the captives died along the way. Many survived, however, and later printed narratives of their ordeals. The most famous victims of this raid were members of the Williams family, and much has been written about them in subsequent centuries. In Captive Histories, Sweeney and Haefeli have gathered primary documents pertaining to the Williams survivors and those less famous. The difference in this book is the inclusion of multiple perspectives, including the Abenaki and Mohawk stories that have been passed from generation to generation via oral tradition. Letters, military reports, oral narratives,and memoires are collated and evaluated in such a way as to compare and contrast the English, French, and Native American points of view, and assess belief systems, traditions, the the reliability of the evidence. Captive Histories does not read like a historical novel; it is an important and valuable piece of research and socio/political/cultural commentary on one of colonial New England's most notorious events.
