Living on the Edge of Empire: Alliance, Conflict, and Captivity in Colonial New England

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two school teachers on the 1704 French and Indian Raid on Deerfield, Massachusetts.

The Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association and its Deerfield Teachers' Center, a nationally recognized professional development provider, seeks $179,553 to fund two Landmark Workshops for K-12 Teachers July 10 – 15, 2016 and July 24 – 29, 2016. "Living on the Edge of Empire: Alliance, Conflict and Captivity in Colonial New England" will take place in the beautiful Old Deerfield Village Historic Landmark District and surrounding historic sites. This Workshop will bring together a full range of resources-- landscape, architecture, artifacts, documents, oral histories—which, combined with secondary interpretations, illuminate competing perspectives on the colonial period. It will offer K-12 educators tools to engage students in topics related to the history of colonial America, including cultural interaction on the frontier, colonization, and the European imperial struggle for control of North America, which ultimately set the stage for the American Revolution.
