Evangeline

Musée acadien de l'université de Moncton

The creation of American author Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the mythic figure Evangeline is the heroine of his poem Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie. For Acadians, Evangeline is a symbol of perseverance and hope. Her name is invoked in patriotic rallies and popular ceremonies. She is in fact so much a part of the popular mind that she occasionally transcends the world of the imagination to become an actual historical figure.
