A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

In 1777, four hundred men from the Eastern Shore of Maryland raised a red-coated regiment, pledging their loyalty to king and mother country. Yet for more than two hundred years, their story remained untold. Maryland Loyalists in the American Revolution describes for the first time the lives of these officers and soldiers, examining their beliefs - and the heavy price they paid to uphold them. During the years of tumult and upheaval, great numbers of loyalists lost their homes, their livelihood, and their lives. When war came to an end, many surviving loyalists were banished to Nova Scotia. As they fled, a tragic shipwreck dealt the final blow. Rare and previously unpublished documents portray these forgotten loyalists, bringing to light their struggles and hardships.

From Scientific American:

New gives us the vivid untold story of men and women with strong loyalty to Britain. His style is highly readable, and the treatment often deals with persons we'd like to know about, but do not. New has opened, not one door but several. Each invites us to explore an aspect of the American Revolution that is almost universally neglected. Because of both subject matter and style, this volume is highly recommended.
