Early in the day, some ships arrived in the harbour with some well-dressed Britsh men on board. They called a town meeting for all the locals to attend. At the meeting, these British men asked all of us to sign an oath of neutrality.
I need everyone to sign the oath of neutrality!
30 years later Britain + French where going to war the British swiftly headed to our home town again and forced us to sign an oath of loyalty. Most of us refused to sign it.
If you don't sign the oath of loyalty you will be remove from your land
11,000 of us refused and got deported. Men went on one boat, women and children went on one boat. Everyone was crying. Some people escaped and headed to the Mi'kmaq for help but where hunted.
