The Acadian Expulsion
Subscribe to the podcast!
Beginning in the 16th century, French settlers crossed the Atlantic to settle in a new French colony in the new world. That colony wasn’t modern-day Quebec, however. The colony was known as Acadia.
When the British took control of Acadia in 1713, the Acadians were allowed to stay, but eventually, that privilege was revoked by the British, and those people were scattered to the winds.
Today, the descendants of the Acadians can still be found all over the world.
Learn more about Acadia and the Acadian Expulsion on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
