Is evangaline based on a true story?
No. ( It is the romanticized soap tragedy of a mythical Acadien maiden whitewashes a sea of blood.) Longfellow knew the details of his families benefits from that horrible forced removal How could they hide the Colonial genocide of the French Neutral farming nations from New Brunswick to Nova Scotia 1755-1763? More than 10,000 Acadiens (entire families and villages) who's land was then later taken and settled by New England and British friends. This story is a coverup and obscuring of the crime. Or ethnic cleansing propaganda which continues Today.
