abstract
The first episode covers 1670 to 1755. In the late 1600s, New France's growing populace includes shopkeepers, artisans, farmers, and fur-trading expansionists. But fast-paced growth leads to conflicts that threaten the new society. The heartrending deportation of Acadians is emblematic of the struggle to possess North America, which enters its final, decisive phase in the 1750s.
The second episode covers 1754 to 1775. Two decades of the mid 1700s shape Canada in profound ways. A conflict between England and France becomes a world war that engulfs the continent. French troops encounter a British juggernaut, first at Louisbourg, then on a farmer's field outside Quebec.
