Retracing History

Posted: Wednesday, October 3, 2012 2:00 am

It’s so great to be back in Montrose after being gone just 10 days! I appreciate our quiet, friendly town surrounded by unsurpassed beauty. I took what was supposed to be a “Fall Foliage Cruise” from New York City to Nova Scotia and down the East Coast. Although beautiful, there was no fall foliage until I returned home.  

We (my sister and I) visited several museums and historic sites and I loved that! I’ve always wanted to go to Boston, so seeing the Freedom Trail with its cemeteries and historic buildings was amazing. We toured the USS Constitution and had lunch at Cheers — fun!

The first Americans to settle in St. John, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia were loyalists who left following the American Revolution in 1783. Around 3 percent of the total American population at that time evacuated to resettle in Canada. Although many were instrumental in founding America in the early 17th century, they became disillusioned when they lost property, wealth and security during the Revolution.
