Dugua Saint John, 2004

On the 400th anniversary of the passage of the Dugua expedition past the site where Saint John would be established, a monument was constructed in this largely English-speaking city to remember Dugua. Although Champlain had named the St John River (after John the Baptist) in 1604, on this occasion English-speakers joined with Acadians to credit the much-ignored leader of the expedition.
