Cajuns Begin Boarding Ships
On the morning of September 10, 1755, the Cajun prisoner's were causing quite a commotion. To lesson the danger of a rebellion, Colonel Winslow decided to divide ~250 men on ~5 ships. The men, were put in columns 6 deep surrounded by ~80 armed soldiers. The order was given to march, but none of the Cajun men moved. The soldiers were ordered to brandish their bayonets and the men were forced to start moving. Cajun women and children lined the road crying and calling out to their loved ones as they marched down to the landing ~1.5 miles away.
The final boarding began October 8, 1755. Cajun women were carrying their children and were in great distress. Families were torn apart as children were taken from their parents. All their belongings and the elderly were taken in carts. The Grand Pre' and Gaspereau areas were cleared quickly. All the Cajun families were packed onboard, crowded to the point of suffocation ... but there was still not enough space for everyone.
Though they had packed what provisions they could, many of Cajun's belongings had to be left on the shore for lack of space. Most of their belongings, such as furniture and household items, were left behind in the carts. Many could only bring some clothes and personal effects. All of their livestock was left behind. This consisted of ~43,500 cattle, ~48,500 sheep, ~23,500 pigs, ~2,800 horses, and a variety of fowl.
