The Atlantic Canada Virtual Archives and the University of New Brunswick’s Electronic Text Centre are pleased to announce the launch of two new websites: Black Loyalists in New Brunswick, 1783-1827 and Women Loyalists in New Brunswick, 1783-1827. The first website is constructed around more than 70 petitions concerning land grants to African Americans, who experienced great difficulty securing the land promised to them before they left the United States to settle in what became the Maritime Provinces of Canada after the American Revolution. The second website, Loyalist Women in New Brunswick, features the letters and other primary documents relating to Loyalist women who settled New Brunswick. Each site contains digitized primary documents, an image gallery, and essays that provide historical context for one of he most dramatic moments in Canadian history.
