2005 Procession

On 5 September 2005, the day on which Acadians had been rounded up for their deportation 250 years earlier, Jean Gaudet led a procession that reversed the route that had been taken in 1755, marching from Horton Landing (where Acadians had been loaded on to ships) to Grand-Pré where their march to the ships had begun. While some had sought during this year of deportation memory to "turn the page" on this episode, this procession was an opportunity to remember its on-going significance for Acadians.
