That's all fine and good. But at the time of your rebellion a Tory was a Loyalist by definition and being a liberal was not a requirement to be a loyalist.to Silver and those of that ilk # I had family on both sides at Saratoga. Two grandfathers, four uncles. two uncles by marriage. one being a
captain under Colonel McKay . On the other side I had a gr uncle and several cousins from Litchfield CT. My 6th gr uncle deeded land to my
5th gr grandfather and his (5th) brother when they left for Lower Canada. Due to the 'excesses' of John Burgoyne some of my people spent
the winter of 78 in General Schuyler's barn. History will confirm and I will assure you we called them /x&%#ing Tories!
As a footnote we finally buried the hatchet of division on Sept 8 of 2010. It is with tears of regret that we did not do it sooner.
To those of you who ride for the brand, my deepest regards
