Le Grand Derangement - Expulsion of Acadians
On October 27, 1755, escorted by ~3 British war ships; the fleet of ~24 ships set sail. There were approximately ~2898 Cajuns on board.
On December 13, 1755 ~2 ships carried away ~350 of the Grand Pre' Cajuns, ~1 sailed to Boston and ~1 to sailed to Connecticut.
On December 20, 1755 the final ~230 Grand Pre' Cajuns were taken in ~2 more vessels ~1 to Boston and ~1 to Virginia.
The deportation at Beaubassin was not less severe. Though it was easier for them to escape, the Beaubassin Cajuns were treated much worse than the Grand Pre' Cajuns. They were purposely separated from their families. This was to punish the Beaubassin Cajuns for participating in the battle with the English at Fort Beausejour.
A group of the Beaubassin Cajuns, about ~1,000, hid out in the woods and lived with the Mi'kmaq; including a group led by Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil, who fought the British along the Peticodiac River of New Brunswick.
