Memorial Hall Museum, in collaboration with Native and French Canadian cultural organizations, and with funding support from both NEH and IMLS, has launched a website that focuses on the 1704 raid on Deerfield, Massachusetts, with the purpose of commemorating and reinterpreting the event from the perspectives of all the cultural groups who were present. The website brings together historical scenes, stories of real people's lives, historical artifacts and documents, voices and songs, historical maps, essays, and a timeline, to illuminate broad and competing perspectives on this dramatic event. Using innovative technology, the website demonstrates a model approach for depicting and voicing diverse perspectives of history in a way that is engaging and compelling to the general public.
