EVANGELINE -- A TALE OF ACADIE is a poem by an American poet, Henry W. Longfellow which represents a the lost love between the young Evangeline and Gabriel during the Expulsion of the Acadians from Nova Scotia in 1755.
This is one of the epic love stories that reduce most of our clients to tears at its conclusion. In memory of the great expulsion in 1755, the Canadian government helped build a memorial park in the Grand Pre area. A fascinating tour which explains the remarkable and resilient spirit of The Acadians, we will visit the presumed site of the original deportation and you will feel the eeriness of how families were torn apart. The full Cajun story will never be told fully without visiting the Grand Pre.
