The Exile
 
 

View Acadian History - Grand Derangement Locations in a larger map
About 6,000 Acadians were exiled from Port Royal, Grand Pre, and Beaubassin in 1755 to the American Colonies and England (via Virginia). Over 3,000 more were exiled after the fall of Louisbourg in 1758 and sent to France. When the war ended in 1763, the Exile was technically over. Between 1755 and 1785, Acadians migrated to several other locations.  •  The 1755 Exile
 • The 1758 Exile
 • The "End" of the Exile
Beginning in 2005, a number of monuments were erected to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the exile.
