Philippe d'Entremont was one of the first French immigrants to settle in the New World. Lieutenant to the Governor, Charles de la Tour, d'Entremont was an educated man who had to learn to adjust to the harsh environment of Acadia. A hundred years later, his was one of the last families to leave Pubnico, Nova Scotia during the Acadian expulsion of 1755, and one of the first to return twelve years later. At Grand-Pre, Nova Scotia, a church and the statue of Evangeline commemorates the expulsion, when 10,000 Acadians were exiled for refusing to sign the oath of allegiance to the King of England. Produced by Acadian filmmaker Peter d'Entremont, a descendant of Philippe d'Entremont. In French: Retour, Le: L'heritage de Philippe d'Entremont
