This is a neatly laid out, interactive, and well-illustrated account of the Raid on Deerfield in 1704. The organization of the website allows users to explore the event either in chronological order, thematically, or by simply browsing through the wealth of illustrations, explanations, and background information. The reconstruction of the Raid on Deerfield allows users to find out about the multiple (cultural, economic, geopolitical) contexts that came to play in the conflict, and lets them piece together their own interpretation.

The home page and the video introduction do a commendable job of explaining what is at stake in revisiting this historical event through this case study. Also, the website balances judiciously between the English, French Mohawk, Huron, and Wobanaki perspectives in the Raid on Deerfield, and offers ample background history on all of these groups. The glossary, bibliography, timeline, and maps make this website not just a compelling case study/tutorial, but also a more widely usable resource on the interaction between European and Native American people in colonial New England.

 

Technical Remarks:

The website has a clear and appealing layout, and is easy to navigate. Most of the texts contain useful hyperlinks to the glossary and maps.

This is an extremely well planned, organic  lesson  which weaves the story of The Raid on Deerfield with the cultural, economic, religious, social, and political backgrounds of the five groups involved. A rich tapestry, easy to read, interpret, and finally analyze.

Will use in US History 1.

Technical Remarks:

The site is so easy to use, intuitive. No stress.

I am planning to use this site in an assignment in my college-level U.S. history survey course in Fall 2008. I particularly like that the three Indian groups and the French each receive as much attention as the English perspective. I also like that the site provides considerable background information so that the Raid in 1704 does not appear out of context.
