Deportation of the Prince Edward Island Acadians 1

Deportation of the Prince Edward Island Acadians

$14.95

The deportation of approximately three thousand French settlers from Prince Edward Island in 1758 is a story which has been largely overshadowed by the removal of six to seven thousand Acadians from Nova Scotia in 1755. The research of historian Earle Lockerby has shed a great deal of new light on the deportation from Prince Edward Island: the management and implementation, the poignant personal accounts of captives, the disastrous loss of life, and the successful escape of close to 1,500 settlers who eluded their would-be captors. This book is well illustrated by portraits of the key players, maps, and excerpts of original documents.
