CD: The Redeemed Captive Returning to Zion, or the Captivity and Deliverance of Rev. John Williams


John Williams was a Puritan minister in Deerfield, Massachusetts, at a time of intense hostility between English settlers and the local Indian tribes. On February 29, 1703, Williams himself became a victim when a French and Indian raiding party sacked Deerfield. He spent two and a half years as a captive in Quebec. Williams wrote his autobiographical account of the ordeal in 1706, the year he was released, and it remained for many years one of the most popular Indian captivity accounts. A new full name index has been added. Among the most cited surnames are: Alexander, Allen, Beaumont, Belding, Brooks, Burt, Carter, Catlin, Dickinson, Field, French, Hawks, Hinsdale, Holt, Hurst, Kellogg, Mather, Nims, Pomroy, Shelden, Stebbins, Stevens, Taylor, Warner, Wells, and Williams.
