(American) Loyalist

Many individuals did, in fact, arrive on Long Island as a result of having been virtually evicted from the new country to the North. They moved successfully south as each colony became the site of a losing battle for the British forces, eventually arriving at a large strip of land called “East Florida” by 1782. Most of them fled from their final refuge in East Florida after the Spanish received that land (briefly, from 1782-1783), though some also arrived from places like New York and Philadelphia. These people were Americans by Geography, but had sworn Oaths of Loyalty to the British Crown (as had Bahamians, Antiguans, East Floridians, Jamaicans, New Yorkers, and all other British citizens)—so we decided that it is more appropriate to call them “American Loyalists,” rather than simply “Loyalists.”
