Summary
Black Loyalists is an attempt to present hard data about the lives of Black Loyalists before they escaped slavery in early South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, and after they settled in Nova Scotia. This remarkable book brings back into our awareness the brave and enterprising men and women who survived the chaos of the American Revolution, people who found a way to liberty and human dignity. -- Book Jacket
