In 1884, 180 years after she was slain on the march to Canada following the attack on Deerfield on February 29, 1704, a monument was dedicated to Mrs. Eunice Williams, wife of the Deerfield minister, the Reverend John Williams. Rev. Moors, minister in Greenfield, Massachusetts, delivered the address at the dedication. He recounts Eunice Williams's ancestry, discusses warfare from the 15th century to the 19th, and concludes that the 19th century has done more and better things for humanity than all the previous Christian centuries combined.
