I was delighted to see John Demos’s gripping account of the Deerfield Massacre in the February/March issue. I am frequently asked why Deerfield is so well preserved and retains such a thorough record of its past. My reply is always that the massacre created a historical consciousness that is still with us and is responsible for the very existence of Historic Deerfield.
