Loyally Yours 100

Their Loyalty They Kept, by Glen N. Wiche

While in America the Loyalists are thought of as being among history’s greatest losers, they are proudly remembered in Canada as being the founders of the modern Canadian nation. The sheer number of Loyalists who came to Nova Scotia quickly overwhelmed the slender resources of the colony and the Province of New Brunswick, so often referred to as the “Land of the Loyalists,” was born.

There are thousands of Loyalist lives that remain unrecorded. This book is an attempt to sketch out the lives of some of the Loyalists of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. It is, in the words of an early Loyalist chronicler, an attempt to “gather up the fragments that remain.”

Their Loyalty They Kept

The Burdens of Loyalty: Refugee Tales from the First American Civil War, by Stephen Eric Davidson

The Burdens of Loyalty  recounts the tales of over one hundred loyalist refugees who were evacuated to present day New Brunswick. The rich and complex tapestry of their experiences will be explored by following the course of one refugee couple, John and Hepzibeth Lyon. 
As we follow the thread of the Lyons' lives through the tapestry of the revolution we learn the stories of other loyalists who they encountered while making their way to a final refuge. The deep divisions of the War of Independence appear in the day-to-day lives of the citizens of Redding, Connecticut, where brother fought brother. There are further accounts of the impact of this devastating civil war when Nova Scotia-bound ships evacuated the loyalists who sacrificed everything for a united empire,. Finally, as John and Hepzibeth settled in the wilderness of the St. John River Valley, there are tales of how their fellow war refugees began to build new lives in a land far from their homes and loved ones.
 What price did these displaced people pay for their burdens of loyalty? The answer is to be found in the refugee tales of this book.

Loyalist Rebellion

Loyalist Rebellion in New Brunswick, by David Bell

The refugees who fled to Canada after the Revolutionary War wished to build a distinct, non-American culture. In Saint John an elite of well-connected men, mainly from Massachusetts, allied themselves with officials appointed by Britain and sought to control the levers of power in the colony. They were opposed by upstart political leaders who, with the support of a majority of residents, bitterly fought the already-entrenched minority.

The result was conflict, a war of words that soon escalated into mob violence and criminal trials. When the critics of the governor won an election, the governor and his coterie engineered a reversal of the result. Popular political leaders were charged and convicted of sedition.

The hostility of colonial administrators in Canada to dissent and political opposition and their labelling their opponents -- even Loyalists -- as disloyal rebels was long lasting. This fascinating account of early Canadian politics challenges many conventional ideas about the role of Loyalists and British colonial administrators in Canada's original political culture.
