Beschreibung:

History shows that the Acadians were imprisoned in the church at grand-pré on September 5, and that on-september 10 the people were marched to the seashore, put on board the waiting vessels, and carried away. For the purposes of his story Long fellow wished to have Evangeline's betrothal dance interrupted by the bell which summoned the men to the church where they were to be imprisoned. He also wished to have the warm Indian summer season as a background for the out-of-door betrothal festivities. Hence he moved the exile of the Acadians forward to the latter part of October. The time covered by the story is thirty-eight years. For the sake of getting the action more clearly before us, the time-sequence may be roughly estimated to be somewhat as follows: October 23, 1755, evening; Evangeline's betrothal contract. October 24, betrothal feast and dance; imprisonment of the men in the church. October 25, 26, 27, 28, women preparing for departure; men detained in the church. October 29, women cart goods to the shore; at sunset the men march to the shore; Gabriel put on board ship; Evangeline left on Shore; village burned; her father dies.
