Upper Canada Loyalists
In the previous classes we have learned about the war of 1812, The Battle of the plains of Abraham. The Seven Years War, and etc. Now what we had to do for our project is in groups we had to learn about the group of loyalists that we were assigned and we had to make a Jackaw, a report and primary and secondary sources. In this project were chosen to do The Upper Canada Loyalists. In this presentation, we will discuss this....
-Upper Canada is made up of present-day Southern Ontario.
- it also includes areas of Northern Ontario:like Ottawa River, Lake Huron,and Lake Superior.
The reason why they moved to Upper Canada
- Most of the settlers in Upper Canada once lived a normal, peaceful life back in America.
-Until one day, the revolutionary war began. The loyalist who once had power lost to their power to the people who opposed them.
The people who opposed the king took control .
-All the loyalists lost their jobs and homes. The only thing left for them to do was to flee and move to the place where it was more safer and prosperous.
