Loyalist and Provincial Regiments

    Contributed by Jim Gillgam

    Our patriot ancestors were fighting against not just British troops from England, but 
    their own countrymen that stayed loyal to the King. 
    This is not a complete list, but it gives an idea of the thousands of loyalist troops 
    involved. Most of these troops and their families resettled in Canada after the war ended. 
    Some stayed and faced persecution by the patriots.
