Abstract
The Acadians were a Francophone people who lived in Nova Scotia after 1604. In 1713 the colony and its citizens became British. This created a great conflict between the French Inhabitants, as the British called the Acadians, and the British rulers. This conflict reached its culmination in 1755 when Governor Charles Lawrence forcibly deported all the Acadians to other British Colonies in North America. The forcible deportation, also called the Expulsion or in French, Le Grand D�rangement, was an act of war and retaliation for the British and an offensive, in both meanings of the word, act towards the Acadians.
