Transcript of The black loyalists

The Black Loyalists The Black Loyalists The black loyalists Loyalists refer to American colonists who remained loyal to the british. Many of them served under them during the war. Loyalists settled in what are now the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Ontario. This is very important to canadian history because without loyalists, we wouldn't have known the history them. That is why they are very important. When Sir Henry Clinton wrote the proclamation, it said that any Black American to leave the war zone will have freedom, protection and land. Thousands of Black Americans rushed into the land to get free from the others. Media wiki
