1729/30, Feb 201810, Nov 27
an Anglo-American woman who was captured with her family during an Abenaki Indian raid on Charlestown, New Hampshire in August 1754, just after the outbreak of the French and Indian War. In 1796, a full forty-two years after her capture by Indians, Johnson decided to record an account of her ordeal. Using her surviving letters, notes and diary, as well the memories of her family and fellow captives Labarree and Farnsworth, she dictated her account to Charlestown lawyer John Curtis Chamberlain, who ghostwrote the first edition (with the possible collaboration of Joseph Dennie and Royall Tyler).
