Acadian history in the Isthmus of Chignecto / by Margaret Coleman.: R61-2/7-29E-PDF

"The Isthmus of Chignecto, the link connecting the present-day provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, has been the scene of considerable activity since the time of its first settlement by French and Acadian settlers in the early 1670's. Between 1670 and 1710 the French controlled "Acadie" and the Isthmus saw the third largest concentration of settlement in the province. Settlement continued there, and even grew, after the British assumed control of what they called Nova Scotia in 1710. As tensions between England and France grew up in the 1740's and 1750's the Isthmus assumed a new more strategic importance. … This paper examines the history of the Acadian people who inhabited Chignecto from the 1670's until their dispersal in the mid-1750's"--pages 1-2.
