Note the Acadian Cross behind us. It marks the place where the British soldiers forced the resident French farmers and villagers into exile.
A bronze statue of Evangeline in front of the Acadian Church. Evangeline is a fictional character that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow immortalized in his poem "Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie". My Mom love poetry and loved Longfellow's work. I remember her reading this book to me. I never knew that it had any truth. A great book to read.
