The Essays:

Acadian Immigration
"Arriving at New Orleans in late February, 1765 with little more than the clothes they carried on their backs, 193 Halifax Acadians were greeted by a colonial government nearly as destitute as they."

Acadian Adaptation
"The exiles' material culture is a stark reminder of their pre-capitalist background. The Acadian ethos was not based upon materialism, but rather the biblical values of land and family."
