Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hope Town is a municipality in the Gasp sie- les-de-la-Madeleine region of the province of Quebec in Canada. Despite its name, the place does not have a "town" (ville) status.In 1768, the first pioneer arrived, a certain Duncan McRae, a soldier of the Seaforth Highlanders and native of Dundee in Scotland. His friend and fellow soldier Donald Ross, who served in General Wolfe's army, is thought to be the one that attributed the name "Hope" to the place. In 1786, a wave of Loyalists followed and the village was really established.show more
