DEERFIELD MASSACRE AT 300 The Corner reminds me that today is the 300th anniversary of the Deerfield Massacre. What better day to buy a copy of Evan Haefeli and Kevin Sweeney's Captors and Captives, the most in-depth study of the raid and its aftermath. And a damn fine read too. (Full disclosure: I checked footnotes for this baby when I was Professor Sweeney's advisee at Amherst. But it affected my judgment as to the book's quality not-at-all. I swear!)
