Current GOAL

Evengeline's mission is to travel firstly to France and thence to Nova Scotia. From there she wants to travel south to Louisiana, visiting as many places associated with the 'Grand Derangement' or Expulsion of the Acadians in 1755. Finally, she wants to return home to the start of her journey.

About This Item

Evangeline before her departure

In 1755, British soldiers under the command of Colonel John Winslow took captive 413 men under false pretenses in the church of St. Charles in the Acadian settlement of Grand Pre in Nova Scotia. Along with many others they were forced to forfeit their land and livestock and transported by ship to various destinations along the eastern seaboard of the United States. An epic poem called 'Evangeline' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow tells the story of a young Acadian woman by that name, her seperation from her groom-to-be in the course of the expulsion and her subsequent unrelenting search for him.
It would be nice if she could be photographed at as many places associated with the event as possible. Particularly, Grand Pre in Nova Scotia and St. Martinville in Louisiana. Many other places were arrival points for the deportation ships such as Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia (Williamsburg), The Carolinas, Georgia, coastal Alabama and east Texas. Evangeline carries a list of areas she would like to visit with her.

Retrieve It from a Cache 7/20/2011 MIX502 retrieved it from Fort Yargo State Park Georgia   Visit Log

Cub Scout pack 574 of Auburn, Ga found this travel bug. Although there was no doll just the dog tag! Our group could not afford the $5 dollars each to park so we asked permission to enter on the second entrance for free. We did not realize we would be hiking a mile through sticker bushes and face a step ravine only to find that we ended up way off course. So we headed back out the way we came. Some friendly bicyclists told us to hike along side the lake. This trail was much easier and faster. We arrived at our destination and our boys found the cache. They were super excited to find the travel bug on their very first cache. We will see if we can finally get the bug on its way. Seems like its been stuck in Georgia a while.
