Course Description:

Approximately 20% of colonists remained loyal to the British Crown during the Revolutionary period. Though they ended up on the wrong side of history, they were steadfast and, for the most part, survived the climate of fear and violence in which they lived. They included some of the oldest and wealthiest families, as well as Native Americans and African Americans. For many, particularly those living in the backcountry of the South, fighting continued after the formal war ended. Half of the Loyalist population left for eastern Canada, parts of Great Britain and the Caribbean. This three-part course will look at the lives of Loyalists before, during, and after the Revolution, a war aptly described as a civil war.
