About this event:
Meet a Loyalist veteran of the American Revolution and find out how this conflict was really a civil war between fellow colonists that pitted neighbour against neighbour, and split families apart. The Loyalist is prepared to discuss the motivations and experiences of American loyalists, and their re-settlement in Canada as refugees. Students and teachers may direct the discussion through their questions. The Loyalist will also show artifacts (including a musket) and play some live music.
