Salah Barnard served in the army during the French and Indian wars and returned to Deerfield in 1765, with the rank of major. Major Barnard wrote this journal at Albany, New York, in May of 1760, and details events about an "expedition under Col. Haviland against Canada" and "General Amherst by Mohawk River." The spelling is not regular, to say the least, but is not odd for the time period. Upon his return to Deerfield, he fixed up an old house, kept a store and, like most of the men in town, farmed.
