Heroes of the Acadian Resistance tells the unique and little-known story of the young men who led an Acadian resistance in 18th century Nova Scotia. They fought valiantly in a guerilla campaign against the British to save their homes and families from destruction and deportation. Their battle was against a form of ethnic cleansing that saw British soldiers burn every remnant of the Acadian community -- homes, barns and churches. All Acadians who the soldiers were able to round up were forcibly deported.
This book tells the story of the Acadian resistance and two young Acadians who proved to be leaders in these battles - Joseph Beausoleil Broussard and Pierre II Surette - and offers a fresh perspective on the tragic events of the Acadian expulsion from 18th century Nova Scotia.Author: Dianne Marshall
