Book Description

January 1, 1997 0807120995 978-0807120996
Founding of New Acadia is about the Acadian people that had to live in one of America's colonies in Louisiana during the 18th-19th centuries. The Acadians, who lived in modern day Nova Scotia, would not side with the French or the British, and remained neutral, therefore, the British exiled first the men then women and children from their home of Acadia to the colonies of America throughout New England, Virginia, and what this book focuses on, Louisiana. Their life in Louisiana has brought many influences including one of it's most famous, modern day Cajun.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Acadia September 25, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The Acadians are North Americans of French descent who have been in the Western Hemisphere for nearly 400 years. During that time they have remained a relatively homogeneous group. The early history of the Acadians has been previously well-documented. Dr. Brasseaux, a history scholar-teacher, has been heard telling students to investigate their roots in their studies. In this well researched and written volume, he has done just that himself. He relates in easily readable form the settling of Acadian South Louisiana. He is fortunate to have a large collection of Spanish Colonial documents literally at his fingertips to assist in his research. His book is a "must read" for anyone who wants the real picture of the beginnings of Acadiana.

This book takes you through the history of the Acadian people to their new home in Louisana. It gives the reader a sense of what made the Acadian-Cajun people the way they are today. I recomend it for any one interested in Acadian history or Louisiana history.

I started reading about the plight of the Acadian exiles when I found that I had about 8 lines of descent
within the Acadian settlers in Louisiana. I found this book to be a thorough introduction to the
hardships endured by these fiercely independent folk, and their "deliverance" in Louisiana. Although it
wasn't all milk and honey and roses once they got to Louisiana territory, it was a place to rebuild, recover,
and reconnect with family that they hadn't seen in 10-20 years. Although there are no family trees in the
text, if one knows who their Acadian forebears are, one can get glimpses into their day-to-day lives,
including where they settled originally, where they subsequently moved to, some birth/death/marriage
information, and most fascinatingly, who sued who and who got in trouble with the authorities. If
nothing else, the bibliography is worth the purchase price! I never expect to be able to spend the
endless hours it would take to pore over the old documents in the libraries, but there are a few gems
that I can get my hands on some day, and Carl Brasseaux has my gratitude for showing them to me!
