The Great Migration

In the Great Migration many people migrated. There were about 3,000 white loyalists and 2,500 black loyalists. The Black and White loyalists never got along. These people migrated because the British promised them land. The loyalists were once part of the Thirteen Colonies. They had to leave because they were not accepted by the Thirteen Colonies. They were kicked out because they supported the British during the Thirteen Colonies rebellion. First Nations were also disturbed by the Migration. The British asked and bribed them to move of their land so they could create more farms for the loyalists that were coming.
