Many units composed largely of persons residing in the American Provinces at the time of the Revolution fought valiantly in support of the Crown. Forfeiting their property and suffering great privation, they and their descendants played a leading role in the rapid development of this province. For their service and sacrifice all those who suffered for this cause are known as United Empire Loyalists.
