read evangeline by henry wadsworth longfellow.  latin new scotland up the mississippi then a right turn to philadelphia

the fate of the acadians hinged on international rivalry, and they were little more than pawns in the game

dwelt in the love of god and of man. alike were they free from
fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics.
neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows;
but their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of the owners;
their richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance

under the orchard-trees and down the path to the meadows;
old folk and young together, and children mingled among them.
fairest of all the maids was evangeline, benedict's daughter!
noblest of all the youths was gabriel, son of the blacksmith!

they who dwell there have named it the eden of louisiana

still stands the forests primeval; but far away from its shadow,
side by side, in their nameless graves, the lovers are sleeping.
under the humble walls of the little catholic church yard,
in the heart of the city, they lie, unknown and unnoticed.
daily the tides of life go ebbing and flowing beside them,
thousands of throbbing hearts, where theirs are at rest and forever,
thousands of aching brains, where theirs no longer are busy,
thousands of toiling hands, where theirs have ceased from their labours,
thousands of weary feet, where their have completed their journey!
