Title

Cultural Face-Off : Yankees, British, and the St. John Valley French

Description

Comparison of descriptions of the Upper St. John River Valley and its people as found in the travelogues of British voyagers, the official reports of American agents, and the accounts of Canadian historians at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Descriptive distinctions between "Acadian" and "French Canadian." The impact of outsider-written characterizations of the St. John Valley area on general perceptions of its residents, on conceptions of the Acadians, and on American attitudes toward the British. The challenges of American officials wanting to integrate the St. John Valley French border population into the laws and customs of the United States, and the realization of these frustrations in political and journalistic description.
