Field Trip to Historic Fort Beausejour/Fort Cumberland
A Study Tour to one of North America’s most important historic sites:
Where the Acadian Deportation began and the American Revolution was halted.
The Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society is pleased to offer a day-long excursion to Fort Beausejour/Fort Cumberland, the site of sieges in both 1755 and 1776, as part of its contribution to the annual meeting of the Canadian Historical Association.
The tour will depart Fredericton at 8:00AM on Sunday, May 29 and travel first to the site of the erased Acadian village of Beaubassin and nearby Fort Lawrence in Nova Scotia. The tour will then follow the 1755 British assault across the Missaguash River to the fortified siege camp at Mt Whatley, which was used again by Rebels in 1776. After visiting the National Historic Site of Fort Beausejour/Fort Cumberland and its Museum, the tour makes it way through some Acadian and Planter settlements on the Chignecto Isthmus to the Northumberland Straight and Fort Gaspereaux/Fort Moncton. The day will close with a seafood feast in Cape Pelé, NB. The tour will return to Fredericton at about 8:00PM.
The cost is $35.00--meals and museum entry not included--and includes a copy of C.M. Hand’s The Siege of Fort Beausejour. Participation is limited to 18; registration closes on 15 May 2011. Cheques should be made payable to “The Gregg Centre” and sent to The Gregg Centre, University of New Brunswick, P.O. Box 4400, Fredericton, NB E3B 5A3.
