At the end of the American Revolution, sixty thousand Americans loyal to the British cause fled the United States and became refugees throughout the British Empire. Loyalists traveled to Canada, sailed for Britain, and journeyed to the Bahamas and the West Indies. Some ventured still farther afield, to Africa and India. Wherever they went, this voyage into exile was a trip into the unknown. Professor Jasanoff tells stories of the global migration of American Loyalists and examines its effects on the places these Loyalists settled.
