The people connected to Fort Anne National Historic Site are the famous and almost unknown, but all made substantial contributions to Canadian history. This remarkable history begins in the early 17th century with the coming together of people from three cultures: First Nations, French and English. It ended after the American War of Independence brought thousands of Loyalists to the shores of Nova Scotia, many of whom settled in and around Annapolis Royal. All told, their stories, and countless others, would change the country forever.
