On a February morning of 1704, a group of French soldiers and Native Americans raided the town of Deerfield, Mass. Nearly fifty townspeople died, and the town was burned. Over one hundred townspeople were taken captive and forced to march hundreds of miles in the dead of winter to Montreal. Find out what led up to this terrible event and the fate of the colonists taken captive.

THE FORGOTTEN COLONY OF NEW NETHERLAND
Most people know that the Pilgrims crossed the Atlantic to land in Plymouth Harbor in 1620 and that their arrival began the settlement of the English in New England.

Uncover the least known colony, the Dutch colony of New Netherland.

THE BAY PSALM BOOK AND THE NEW ENGLAND PRIMER
In colonial times, books were hard to come by. Besides the Bible, two stood out as the reading material most familiar to early Americans. Both books were designed to pass on the Puritan values of early America. They were the Bay Psalm Book and the New England Primer. Peek inside these books that helped shape the minds of many a colonist.

TOBACCO ECONOMICS: CASH CROP, HEALTH FLOP
Tobacco, the single most influential crop of the colonial period, laid the groundwork for an independent and profitable society, but not without high costs.

THE TRUE STORY? JAMESTOWN, CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH AND POCAHONTAS
The settlement of Jamestown, as reflected in stories and art, became part of American mythology. As with most mythology, there was plenty of opportunity for inaccuracies to develop in the telling and retelling of these stories over the last four hundred years. In reality, we may never know beyond any doubt the true story of the events associated with Jamestown, but here is one version of that story.
