Fort Beauséjour 1755

Battle of Fort Beausejour
Today in 1755 this French fort fell to the British leading to the expulsion of the Acadians. Renamed Fort Cumberland it was briefly besieged by Rebels in the Revolution. We are fortunate to have 2 images from 1755 of the Fort and its environs. Plan of the western part of the Chignecto Isthmus showing Beauséjour Fort and the surrounding area
