At first the Acadians were living happily as neutrals, in the homes and lives they built for themselves. They weren't on anyone's side, and they had a normal happy life.
Where is my family?
Then a soldier came and told them to sign a treaty saying that they would fight for the British, if there was a war. They also said that if they didn't sign, they would be removed from the land.
The Acadians didn't want to sign the treaty, so the British took them away, and burned down their homes, barns, and crops so they would have nothing left to come back to, Some people decided to run and hide in the forest.
The Acaidians were put on ships, and sent them away. Many families were separated and never found each other again.
