The map below enable us to view alternative routes south, following major paths through Pocumtuck/Deerfield, then east to Wachusett. Note the contrast with the Mary Rowlandson's Removes map or the interactive story map, which seek to document the route Rowlandson conveyed in her narrative. Importantly, the locations of Removes 13-18 are quite vague in her narrative, impossible to map with any precision, perhaps because they were partially fabricated. She does mention staying at unspecified Indian towns along the route to Wachusett. Once Mary Rowlandson arrives at Wachusett, where many of the Nipmuc leaders were gathered, the location once more becomes clear.
