The 1704 Raid on Deerfield, MA occurred February 29 when French and Native American forces attacked the English frontier settlement at Deerfield, Massachusetts, just before dawn, burning part of the town, killing 56 villagers, and taking 109 settlers captive. This was part of the larger Queen Anne's War.
The 'lucky' ones were murdered outright, others were captured and forced to walk to Quebec in winter snows. Of those, some died on the trail, some were ransomed back to Massachusetts and a third, mostly children, stayed in Canada. The children that stayed converted to Catholicism and married into the French or First Nations Tribes. Some even returned to Massachusetts decades later to look up their original families.
