• 250 years ago
• The real story behind Longfellow’s Evangeline
Les acadiens: libertarian and Catholic
• Where today’s Louisianan Cajuns (like Ms Saucier?) got their name
• An atrocity committed by Britain
• Where the Americans might have got the idea for the similar ‘ethnic cleansing’ of the Cherokee people about eight decades later, stealing what’s now northern Georgia from this successful, Westernised tribe
