Parker's Cove, Nova Scotia

Located at 44.65, -65.63 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 2 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

Parker's Cove, in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, is a seaside hamlet, located directly on the Bay of Fundy, originally settled by immigrants from the United Kingdom in the mid-18th century. The names of the original 13 families - including Robinson, Guest, Halliday, Oliver, Gilliat, Hudson & Clayton - can be seen on a granite monument overlooking the scenic Annapolis Basin, as well as on the mailboxes along the Shore Road today. Subsequent generations have made their living by fishing for the plentiful products from the bay, including sweet, succulent scallops and North American lobster; harvesting timber from the local hillsides, and servicing the needs of the agricultural community over the hill on the Annapolis Basin. Located approximately six miles outside of the historic village of Annapolis Royal, Parker's Cove is home to the studio of an award winning painter - Wayne Boucher, has the largest and most active fishing wharf along this section of the coast, boasts an oceanfront campground for RVs and tents, and supports an active Baptist church congregation. Local crafts still practiced include mat hooking, quilting, and tole painting on driftwood and surf worn rocks. Recreation activities include hiking along the rugged coast, beach combing, biking, and walking along the shoreline at low tide. The tides in Parker's Cove have a range of approximately 30 feet from low to high, and vary with the phases of the moon. Fishermen here fish "with the tides", as the boat basin and wharf are bare at low tide - exposing the ocean bottom to curious humans and flocks of seagulls.

The Annapolis Basin is a sub-basin of the Bay of Fundy, located on the southwestern shores of the bay, along the northwestern shore of Nova Scotia and at the western end of the Annapolis Valley. The basin takes its name from the Annapolis River, which drains into its eastern end at the town of Annapolis Royal. The basin measures approximately 24 kilometres northeast-southwest and 6 kilometres at its widest from northwest to southeast. It is a sheltered and mostly shallow water body, framed by the ridges of the North Mountain and South Mountain ranges of the Annapolis Valley; the basin is geologically a continuation of the valley floor. A break in the North Mountain range at the northwestern edge of the basin, called Digby Gut, provides an outlet to the Bay of Fundy. The Bay Ferries Limited ferry service operating across the Bay of Fundy between Digby and Saint John maintains a terminal on the western shore of the basin near the Digby Gut.

Siege of Port Royal (1710)

Located at 44.65, -65.63 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 4 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Siege of Port Royal (5 – 13 October 1710), also known as the Conquest of Acadia, was conducted by British regular and provincial forces under the command of Francis Nicholson against a French Acadian garrison and the Wabanaki Confederacy under the command of Daniel d'Auger de Subercase, at the Acadian capital, Port Royal. The successful British siege marked the beginning of permanent British control over the peninsular portion of Acadia, which they renamed Nova Scotia, and it was the first time the British took and held a French colonial possession. After the French surrender, the British occupied the fort in the capital with all the pomp and ceremony of having captured one of the great fortresses of Europe, and renamed it Annapolis Royal. The siege was the third British attempt during Queen Anne's War to capture the Acadian capital, and it had profound consequences over the next 50 years. The conquest was a key element in the framing of the North American issues in French-British treaty negotiations of 1711–1713. It resulted in the creation of a new colony—Nova Scotia—and introduced significant questions concerning the fate of both the Acadians and the Mi'kmaq who continued to occupy Acadia. The Conquest of Acadia was a foundational moment in the history of the Canadian state — it was a precursor to the British conquests of Louisbourg and Quebec, and it portended the end of French power in North America more generally.

Siege of Port Royal (1707)

Located at 44.65, -65.63 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 4 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Siege of Port Royal in 1707 was two separate attempts by English colonists from New England to conquer Acadia (roughly the present-day Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) by capturing its capital Port Royal during Queen Anne's War. Both attempts were made by colonial militia, and were led by men inexperienced in siege warfare. Led by Acadian Governor Daniel d'Auger de Subercase, the French troops at Port Royal easily withstood both attempts, assisted by irregular Acadians and the Wabanaki Confederacy outside the fort. The first siege began on June 6, 1707, and lasted 11 days. The English colonel, John March, was able to establish positions near Port Royal's fort, but his engineer claimed the necessary cannons could not be landed, and the force withdrew amid disagreements in the war council. The second siege began August 22, and was never able to establish secure camps, owing to spirited defensive sorties organized by Acadian Governor Daniel d'Auger de Subercase. The siege attempts were viewed as a debacle in Boston, and the expedition's leaders were jeered upon their return. Port Royal was captured in 1710 by a larger force that included British Army troops; that capture marked the end of French rule in peninsular Acadia.

Battle of Port Royal (1690)

Located at 44.65, -65.63 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 4 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Battle of Port Royal (19 May 1690) occurred at Port Royal, the capital of Acadia, during King William's War. A large force of New England provincial militia arrived before Port Royal. The Governor of Acadia Louis-Alexandre des Friches de Menneval had only 70 soldiers; the unfinished enceinte remained open and its 18 cannon had not been brought into firing positions; 42 young men of Port-Royal were absent. Any resistance therefore appeared useless. Meneval surrendered without resistance not long after the New Englanders arrived. The New Englanders, led by Sir William Phips, after alleging Acadian violations of the terms of surrender, plundered the town and the fort. The siege was in response to the Wabanaki Confederacy's raids along the New England border following the sacking of Pentagouet, their confiscation of New England fishing vessels off the Acadian coasts, and the attacks they made from Meductic Indian Village / Fort Meductic in Acadia on New England during the winter of 1689–90. The merchants of Salem and Boston got up a subscription, and in the spring of 1690 the government of Massachusetts organized a campaign against the Acadian settlements. The aftermath of the surrender of Port Royal was unlike any of the previous military campaigns against Acadia. The violence of the plunder alienated many of the Acadians from the New Englanders, broke their trust, and made future relations with their English-speaking neighbors more difficult. Meneval was replaced by Governor Joseph de Villebon who moved the capital of Acadia to Fort Nashwaak on the St. John River for defensive purposes, and to better coordinate military attacks on New England with the natives at Meductic Indian Village / Fort Meductic.
