Acadian Deportation - Acadian Exile - Grand Derangement


Starting in 1755, about 6,000 Acadians were forcibly removed from their colonies. The British military ordered the Acadians' communities to be destroyed and homes and barns were burned down. The people were dispersed among the 13 American colonies, but many refused them and sent them on to Europe. Families were torn apart and many lost everything they owned.


As a result of the deportation and the subsequent migrations, the Acadians ended up in the New England States and all along the eastern seaboard, as far south as Georgia. Many were put in jail, and many died at sea. Others ran away to Quebec, hid with the Mi'kmaqs in Nova Scotia, or went to present-day New Brunswick, or Prince Edward Island.
