This is a story of our history, which Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote over 150 years ago. Many of us remember it from our early days, and there is indeed a spring time freshness in the lilt of its lines. But it's the story itself which has always been popular, the tale of Evangeline which, with its simple pathos stands as a tribute from one of our greatest poets to when America was not yet a country - but was already the proving ground of heroes and heroines. Such a heroine was Evangeline.
