Expulsion of Acadians examined - The Boston Globe

Expulsion of Acadians examined - General Winslow played key role.
In recognition of the 250th anniversary of the expulsion of the French Acadians from Nova Scotia, the Isaac Winslow House, at 634 Careswell St., Marshfield, is hosting a daylong symposium Saturday titled ''Beyond Longfellow's epic poem Evangeline: The Acadian Odyssey and the Role of New England." Eight historians who have studied various aspects of the Acadians and their expulsion will take part in the symposium.
