Inhaltsangabe: The tragic story of the expulsion of the Acadians from 18th century Nova Scotia is well known around the world. In the summer of 1755, following their repeated refusals to sign an oath of allegiance to the British King, Governor Charles Lawrence and his Council., without approval from London, decided to rid Nova Scotia of Acadians, and resettle their land with English-speaking protestants. It was, in effect, a form of ethnic cleansing. British soldiers burned every remnant of the Acadian community – homes, barns and churches – while thousands were loaded onto transport vessels and sent into exile. But there is so much more to the story. This book tells the little-known story of the Acadian resistance and two key leaders ― Joseph Beausoleil Broussard and Pierre II Surette. The first sign of rebellion appeared early in the 18th century, just as the British conquered Nova Scotia for the last time. Intolerant governors often exploited Acadian farmers and merchants, and when it suited them, tossed them into prison on trumped-up charges. Soon, young Acadians, unlike their more pragmatic elders, began to find ways to resist. The French-British struggle for control of North America continued over several decades. In its efforts to regain Nova Scotia, the French government used missionary priests as secret agents to foment resistance amongst Mi’kmaq and Acadian Catholics. Some priests actively led resistance attacks. The conflict was violent and relentless. No Acadian man, woman or child was safe. At the end of the struggle, while Pierre II Surette and his family remained in Nova Scotia, Beausoleil found the means to lead his people southward. On their arrival at Louisiana they were met with great warmth and compassion. There, they had at last found a safe haven where their children and grandchildren would be assured of a peaceful and secure future. To this day, Beausoleil is remembered throughout Louisiana as a great Acadian hero. His many descendants and those of his followers, continue to hold him in high regard. This book offers a fascinating new perspective on the story of the Acadian people.
