Liberty's exiles

I have read other books on the loyalist of the American Revolution , however I have never read or heard of a book where the loyalists are treated as a Diaspora . I have heard of loyalists who have gone to Britain or other places of the globe but never treated as a group. Good read.

America's First Civil War

What did you love best about Liberty's Exiles?

Maya Jasanoff's narrative on what might be thought of as America's first civil war — the Revolution — is an engaging and comprehensive account of Americans who remained loyal to Britain and their postwar efforts to reclaim their lives in Canada, the Caribbean, India, Africa, and other parts of the British Empire. The narrator, L.J. Ganzer, does an able job, but because the author is female I think the narrator should have been female too.
