Colonists from France came to Canada and settled in Acadia also known as present day east coast colonies during the seventeenth century. The name given to the French colonists from the time of arrival to Canada was the “Acadians”. The Acadians from France continued their formal lifestyle by farming, fishing and maintaining a close family oriented culture in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. The Acadians had created a prosperous agriculture economy up until the late eighteenth century, when there was a colonial struggle in power between the French and the British. British had conquered Port Royal and the Acadians refused to recognize British rule, wanting to keep their religious freedom and not wanting to be obliged to bears arms in the event of war. In this essay I will show that the impact from the England colonial rules led the Acadians to be deported and there they made a decision to settle in the Southern United states. This research essay will discuss why the they settles in the Maritime Provinces, what conflicts arise for in order for the British to exile them and why they chose the Southern United States to settle during the seventeenth and eighteenth century. Firstly, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick had fertile lands and full of many resources that benefited the Acadians which allowed them to continue in their former lives. The Acadians came from Europe during the seventeenth century to become self-reliant people. They farmed and raised livestock on marsh lands in order to be independent. In order for the Acadians to continue their normal lifestyles, they needed to become independent and learn how to create a successful economy in the east coast coloni.
