Canadian History Booklist - Acadians and Louisbourg


Canadian History during the exile of the Acadians and the Battle of Louisbourg is a time in Canadian History when we have risen to high heights, and stooped to some of the lowest lows... It is a great time to discover with your children and help them to understand that history is not always pretty. It can be very difficult! I hope that this booklist helps you to explore!!
