    Excerpt from A Short History of Carleton County: New Brunswick In undertaking to place before the public some impressions and facts of Carleton county and, incidentally, of Victoria and Madawaska, my idea is to establish a guide post here and there, which, with the copious matter already published, may aid someone in the future, with an inclination to local history in the larger task of editing a complete history of the county. A good deal of local tradition about the upper St. John Valley country is worthy of more permanent record. We have learned that history to be interesting, consists not only of the doings of kings and courtiers and soldiers and the description of battles, in many cases, more bloody than glorious. Indeed, militarism, as a sport and pastime, has, we trust, reached the end of its long and cruel days, and a king or other great man is no longer obliged to have his picture taken in a gaudy uniform, decorated in many instances, with unearned medals or other paraphanalia, to attract attention. The struggles of the people for existence and advancement, in a new and unsettled country, are made up of the hardest kind of battles, for, while nature in the long run, gives its rewards, it gives them only to the most courageous and the most persistent. The men and women who undertook, at first, the heavy task of the making of New Brunswick needed stout hearts and strong arms. They have long since passed, let us confidently hope, to a sphere less exacting than they experienced here, and their descendants have no reason to look back upon their careers with anything but pardonable pride. Every student knows that, in the days of the French regime, New Brunswick formed a part of Acadia or Acadia. There was continual strife between French and English, and while treaties were constantly being made between the two powers, they were, quite as constantly, being violated, as territory was switched from one side to the other, limited only by capacity to grasp and to hold. The period was one of polite language and cunning diplomacy. Most Christian kings and Sacred majesties did things through themselves and their agents, that had little, if anything that was Christian or sacred about them.
