In the 1704 Deerfield Raid, a group of French and Native Americans attacked the town of Deerfield, Massachusetts, and carried away over one hundred men, women and children. Over one third of these never returned home; among them was Eunice Williams who married a Kanien'kehaka (Mohawk) named Arosen. Forty years after the attack on Deerfield, Arosen and Eunice visited her brother, the Reverend Stephen Williams. They gave him this red slate gorget, a decorative piece of armor worn to protect the throat.
