Book about Loyalists.

The United Empire Loyalists, Alberta Bound
Compiled by Linda McClelland U.E.

Calgarian Linda McClelland is proud of her heritage. So much so that she undertook an ambitious project to mark the centennial in 2014 of the incorporation of the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada (UELAC).

United Empire Loyalists were people loyal to the British crown during the American Revolution (1775-1783) – and they weren’t just white folk from the U.K. Other Europeans as well as Black and First Nations people who were among those considered Loyalists. Their descendants are recognized with the honorific U.E. and are found all over Canada. Linda traced her family back to the Loyalists and uses the U.E. after her name.

She also compiled the history and stories of United Empire Loyalists into a book called, The United Empire Loyalists, Alberta Bound. I helped edit this priceless historical collection and think it’s a worthwhile addition to any classroom or personal library.
