One comment on the "Acadian History" on the website for "Evangeline".

Overlooked, in quite a detailed history, is the precipitating factor in the excpulsion of the Acadians in 1755, omitted in Acadian versions.

This is the Battle of Grand Pre in 1747, the bloodiest battle in Nova Scotia history. It resulted in 70 to 150 New England militia finding themselves in a mass unmarked grave in Grand Pre.

It was after this massacre that the New Englanders, not surprisingly, took the decision they did

There is a very small cairn in Grand Pre marking the Battle.
