Invasion by the British
Who are these people?
We, the British soldiers have come to take over this land.
Hey! what are you doing here?
The Oath to the British King, George II.
Hey! back off!
You have to sign this oath to our king for peace.
The Acadians were French-speaking people who led a simple and peaceful life. Their daily activities were devoted to securing one’s daily bread.
Burning down the houses
Yes! Finally Acadia is ours!!
The British invaded the Acadians as they had the Treaty of Utrecht with the French under which the Acadia was handed over to them.
Mon enfant, mon enfant!!!
The Acadians were called to the church to take an oath to their king so, the Acadians would not have to fight with the British against France.
Yes! So finally we got Acadia!
The Acadians were scared to leave by burning their houses. So, they were forced to leave their ancestral land.
The Acadians were forced onto ships and sent to Europe or to distant British colonies in what is known as present-day United States.
Some Acadians managed to escape into the forest and find refuge with French or First Nations communities in the area. Others died of exposure or starvation while hiding.
