BOOK - Sketches Illustrating The Early Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada
By J. A. MacDonell.
J. A. MacDonell recognized that much had been written on the subject of United Empire Loyalist settlement in Ontario, the War of 1812-14, and the Rebellion of 1837-8, but expressed concern that there was little mention made of the part that the Highlanders of Glengarry played in those conflicts. He corrects that oversight within the 29 chapters that comprise this formitable text. This book is an fine source of information for those interested in early settlement of the Highlanders in Glengarry and surrounding counties, and the role that they played in the American Revolution, United Empire Loyalist migration and settlement, War of 1812, and the Rebellion of 1837-38.

BOOK - Ontario People: 1796-1803
By Keith Fitzgerald, with Introduction and Index by Norman K. Crowder
Published by Genealogical Publishing Comany, Baltimore, 1993 (reprinted 1998)
After the American Revolution, several thousand families came to settle in the western part of Quebec, later called Upper Canada, then Canada West and today Ontario. These settlers were former members of American Loyalist regiments, discharged British and German servicemen, and some civilians and refugees. They were offered grants of 200 acres of land on condition that they take an oath of allegiance and remain loyal to the British regime. The military and Loyalist arrivals who had come earlier received larger grants, generally in relation to their services to the Crown, their rank or status, and family size. Some entries show, for example, relationships, deaths, military service, maiden names of married women, and remarriage of widows.

BOOK - Tories, Fighting for the King in America's First Civil War
By Thomas B. Allen
Published by Harper Collins, New York, 2010
A sweeping, dramatic history of the Americans who chose to side with the British in the Revolution. The American Revolution was not simply a battle between independence-minded colonists and the oppressive British. As Thomas B. Allen reminds us, it was also a savage and often deeply personal civil war, in which conflicting visions of America pitted neighbor against neighbor and Patriot against Tory (Loyalist) on the battlefield, the village green, and even in church. The Revolution also produced one of the greatest migrations in Western history. More than 80,000 Loyalists left America, most of them settling in Canada.

As a young grenadier in Fraser’s Highlanders, Sergeant James Thompson served in the capture of Louisbourg in 1758, the battle of the Plains of Abraham at Quebec in 1759 and the battle of Sillery the following year. Later he experienced the American blockade of Quebec by Generals Richard Montgomery and Benedict Arnold during the Revolutionary War. He remained in Quebec the rest of his long life.

BOOK - A dirty, trifling, piece of business, Volume I: The Revolutionary War as Waged from Canada in 1781
By Gavin K. Watt
With research assistance of James F. Morrison and William A. Smy
By 1781, the sixth year of the American rebellion, British strategic focus had shifted from the northern states to concentrate in the south. Canada's governor, Frederick Haldimand, was responsible for the defence of the Crown's largest colony against the threat of Franco-American invasion, while assisting overall British strategy. He cleverly employed his sparse resources to vigorously raid the rebels' frontiers and create anxiety, disruption, and deprivation, as his Secret Service undermined their morale with invasion rumours and threatened their Union by negotiating with the independent republic of Vermont to return to the British fold.

BOOK - I am heartily ashamed, Volume II: The Revolutionary War's Final Campaign as Waged from Canada in 1782
By Gavin K. Watt
With research assistance of James F. Morrison and William A. Smy
The second installment in Gavin K. Watt's Revolutionary War trilogy, I am heartily ashamed picks up where A dirty trifling piece of business leaves off. It's a new year with new challenges. An incredibly fierce Canadian winter was endured before raiding was resumed against the enemy's frontiers. Haldimand chose to alter his strategy, giving command of large projects to First Nations leaders whose methods greatly challenged the rebels. A new British ministry announced a cessation of arms in July, soon followed by peace talks. When Haldimand discovered that the treaty's articles threatened the security of Canada and made no provisions for the natives or loyalists, he confessed, "My soul is completely bowed down with grief I am heartily ashamed."
