A record of the Black Loyalists, escaped slaves and free Blacks who joined the British army during the American Revolution. Documents from after the war, previously available in only a few archives, list 3,000 Black Americans who left New York for Nova Scotia, noting their origins, age, gender, and former owners. An introduction examines the Black Loyalist's experiences in Nova Scotia and England and discusses the return of some 1,000 people to Africa, where they established the nation of Sierra Leone. Of interest to scholars in history. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
