An eternity that stops with a sharp blow
  The 1713 Treaty of Utrecht put Acadia under British control, but the determined Acadians refused to pledge total allegiance to their new rulers, promising only neutrality. Suspicious, the government of Halifax began the Acadian Expulsion on Sept. 10, 1755, in the end exiling more than 11,000 'traitors' from their homeland. This is the story of the long journey of one group of deported Acadians from Georgia back to Nova Scotia.
