—  Peter Farb American academic and writer 1929 - 1980
Context: When the Pequots resisted the migration of settlers into the Connecticut Valley in 1637, a party of Puritans surrounded the Pequot village and set fire to it.

Cotton Mather was grateful to the Lord that "on this day we have sent six hundred heathen souls to hell."
