Places & Faces of Loyalist Settlement in the Lower River Passage
The Loyalists and the River
At the close of the American Revolutionary War in 1783, more than 100,000 residents of the Thirteen Colonies who had remained loyal to the King found themselves unwelcome in the new United States. Many had served in Loyalist Provincial and Militia regiments or had otherwise been active supporters of the Crown. Facing persecution by the victorious rebels, they were assigned new homes on land under British rule.
