One of the darkest events in Canadian history is replete with the drama of war, politics, and untold human suffering. Starting in 1755, 10,000 people of French ancestry were expelled from their homes along Canada's east coast by a tyrannical British governor with the complicity of American sympathizers. While some Acadians returned home to try to evade capture and forge a living, others made their way to the Spanish colony of Louisiana, where they farmed and fished and began the vibrant Cajun culture that is renowned around the world.
