If Smithsonian historians can research PTSD and the Civil War, can we also research the Acadian Deportation and PTSD?


Seems there is a lot out on the internet about the historical basis of PTSD. One of the most interesting articles is here about Civil War soldiers and post traumatic stress disorder.  If researchers can dig into primary sources from the mid nineteenth century about PTSD,  could it be possible to leap one hundred years before to the period of the Acadian deportation and research the same thing?




Below is a recap of the stories written about Acadians in this blog so far.  This list includes some early posts that may not have been well researched but I am reviewing them for accuracy and hope they will "make the cut"!
