British Soldiers Arrive In Acadia
On August 15, 1755 Colonel Winslow and his troops arrived at Grand Pre' and set up camp on the plain where the church was located. The camp was made to be fortified. Colonel Winslow stayed in the priest’s house while the other officers stayed in another house nearby. In preparation for the inevitable, Colonel Winslow assigned ~2 soldiers to each Cajun household. Orders were given for the Cajuns to give up all their arms and ammunition.
Governor Lawrence thought this many troops might make the Cajuns suspicious, but Colonel Winslow responded that they weren’t; they expected the soldiers to be with them through the winter. The Cajuns had to supply the soldiers with food (for no money). It was harvest time, and Governor Lawrence wanted the Cajuns to harvest all the grain before being deported.
The British commanders were sworn to secrecy not to tell the Cajuns what was to happen to them. By September 1, 1755, ~3 transport ships had arrived and ~11 more ships arrived over the next few days. The Cajuns wondered what they were for. In preparation for the deportation to begin and to prevent a rebellion, the commanders decided to have all the Cajun men gather at the Grand Pre' church to hear the King’s orders.
On September 2, 1755 Colonel Winslow to drafted the 'Proclamation to the Inhabitants' for the meeting in the church as follows:
"To the inhabitants of the district of Grand Pre, Minas, River Canard and places adjacent, as well ancients as young men and lads.” “Whereas His Excellency the Governor has instructed us of his late resolution respecting the matter proposed to the inhabitants, and has ordered us to communicate the same in person, His Excellency being desirous that each of them should be satisfied of His Majesty’s intentions, which he has also ordered us to communicate to you, as they have been given to him: We, therefore, order and strictly, by these presents, all of the inhabitants as well of the above-named district as of all the other districts, both old and young men, as well as the lads of ten years of age, to attend at the church at Grand Pre, on Friday, the 5th instant, at three in the afternoon, that we may impart to them what we are ordered to communicate to them, declaring that no excuse will be admitted on any pretense whatsoever, on pain of forfeiting goods and chattels, in default of real estate."
"Given at Grand Pre, 2nd September, 1755. Colonel John Winslow."
