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 Rare and previously unpublished documents portray these forgotten loyalists, bringing to light their struggles and hardships.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.

Book Description Cornell Maritime Press Inc.,U.S., United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Maryland Loyalists in the American Revolution tells the story of Marylanders who could not engage in the passionate rebellion that was breaking out all around them. Although most were nearly as disillusioned with England as their rebel counterparts, the loyalists held their ground and refused to join in an armed conflict with the mother country. More than three hundred Eastern Shore men joined the First Battalion of Maryland Loyalists, a provincial red-coat regiment raised in 1777. Their tale is tragic. They were ill-used by the British high command and shipped off to Florida to fight Englands enemy, Spain. Many lost their homes and jobs; some were banished to Nova Scotia. Their thoughts and reasons for siding with England were brushed aside, their regiment seldom mentioned, their struggles and hardships forgotten. Using rare and previously unpublished documents, muster rolls, and letters, the author examines the words and deeds of these forgotten Marylanders. M. Christopher New has uncovered a fascinating chapter of American history. Bookseller Inventory # AAG9780870334955
