Abstract

In 1755 8,000 French Acadians in Nova Scotia were deported across Canada and America for refusing allegiance to the British King. In 1842, the Webster Ashburton Treaty made the St. John River into the U.S.-Canadian border, separating Madawaska from New Brunswick and arbitrarily dividing the valley's Acadian population down the middle. Today the Acadian pocket represents about 15 percentof Maine's 150,000 Franco-Americans. Details; profiles of Madawaska residents.
