"In the 1750s, the present New Brunswick / Nova S cotia border was a fortified camp as the British and French vied for Acadia. Fort Beauséjour guarded the rich fields that Acadian farmers had cultivated tor generations, and it secured New France's crucial overland route fromthe Atlantic to the North American interior. Fort Lawrence, in plain view oniy three kilometres away, asserted the British counterclaim. In June 1755, after a brief seige, a combined force of British soldiers and New Englandvolunteers captured Fort Beauséjour. The Siege of Fort Beaséjour, 1755 tel ls the story of the fort and its defeat. When Beaséjour fell, so did Acadiaand, within a few years, New France.
