The French-speaking folks up in Nova Scotia would not swear allegiance to the British Crown. They would only swear at it. So in 1755, they got kicked out. With no regard to keeping families together, they were put on boats and sent away. Many families separated and never reunited. That was the basis for H.W. Longfellow’s poem, Evangeline. The Evangeline Oak, I guess still stands in Lafayette.
