The Loyalists

July 23, 2016


Following the American Revolutionary War, about 50,000 Loyalists came to the wilderness known as British North America. The coming of the Loyalists changed our land forever. They had lost everything - homes, land, positions of honour, family members and although they had been granted amnesty in the peace agreement, they were turned out of their homeland with curses, jeers, and threats of death.
