Discover the harrowing exodus of Loyalist families from the Mohawk Valley to unknown places in Canada; places they hoped would recapture a home lost.
In this presentation we’ll explore what life was like in the Mohawk Valley for those who would eventually flee to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In knowing what their lives were like in the places they called home, before the outbreak of war, and the influences that forced them to choose sides, we can connect with the human story, and tragedy, of making decisions that would be force them to leave the land they loved and the hope that they would find peace amongst their once neighbours, friends and family.
