Another Border: French-Canadian Emigration to New England

By David Vermette

Two million New Englanders are French-Canadian or Acadian descendants, and yet they remain among the least known historic immigrant communities. This talk will place these late 19th and early 20th century immigrants in a broad historical context that includes the early French presence in North America; the events after the Civil War that drew French-Canadians to the textile industry in particular; and the little-known story of the opposition and conspiracy-mongering they faced, on a national level, when they arrived.
