This post appeared on the RenounceUScitizenship blog. This is another book that I would highly recommend. Given the recent reference to books, perhaps the Isaac Brock Society should create a page of recommended books/readings?
Meet "Liberty's Exiles" – Were they the Loyalists or Patriots in the American Revolution? http://t.co/KijqEeRQca

History is always written by the victors. The American Patriots were a little like George W. Bush. When it comes to the British:
“You are either with the Patriots or you are with the British”
In an earlier post I noted that not all the residents of the colonies wanted to break ties with Britain. Those who wanted to keep ties with Britain were called Loyalists. Given the persecution and/or punishment of American Citizens abroad, I have become interested in the lives of the Loyalists during the American Revolution.
