Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Deerfield, (search)
Deerfield, A town on the west bank of the Connecticut River, in Franklin county, Mass.; notable as having been twice the victim of a foray by French and Indians. During King Philip's War a terrible slaughter occurred a mile from the town, Sept. 18 (O. S.), 1675. The Indians had burned Deerfield and murdered some of the inhabitants. The survivors fled, leaving about 3,000 bushels of wheat in stacks in the field. Capt. Thomas Lothrop, commanding part of a force at Hadley, was sent with eighty men to secure this grain. As they approached Deerfield they fell into an Indian ambush, and the captain and seventy-six men were slain. They sold their lives dearly, for ninety-six of their assailants perished in the fight. The stream near which the scene occurred has been called Bloody Brook to this day. A rude monument was erected on the spot forty years afterwards, and in 1838 another—an obelisk of white marble—was put up there. Late in February, 1704, a party of French and Indians,

Just as the latter seemed about to strike a destructive blow, and the men, unskilled in military affairs, felt themselves almost powerless, a man with a longskilled in military affairs, felt themselves almost powerless, a man with a long, flowing white beard and military air suddenly appeared, drew his sword, and, putting himself at the head of the armed men, filled them with courage and led them to victory. The Indians fell back and fled, when the mysterious leader as suddenly disappeared, none knowing whence he came or whither he went. It was Col. William Goffe (q. v.), the regicide, who was then concealed in the house of Mr. Russell, at Hadley.
