Publisher Description

Americans who opposed the Revolution and took up arms to fight for King George III called themselves Loyalists, and  equivalent of the Continental Army was the Loyalist Corps.  

In this volume are the stories of these military units, and the men who fought in them -- Americans in the Service of the King. 


Fighting For the British 



Then all draw your swords, and constantly sing,

Success to our Troop, our Country, and King.


That was a song of the Loyalists, Americans who opposed the Revolution and took up arms to fight for King George III.  More than 150 military units were raised by Loyalists during the Revolutionary War. In the South alone, British military archives list twenty-six Loyalist units that fought in southern campaigns.  There,  a Continental Army officer wrote, Loyalists and Rebels fought "with little less than savage fury."
