Excerpt from The Royal Grenadiers: A Regimental History of the 10th Infantry Regiment of the Active Militia of Canada
Hen Britain, in 1760, found herself the undisputed mistress of Canada. There was the nucleus of a militia force in what is now the Province of Ontario, for th... ere were a few French settlements at Fort Frontenac, Fort Rouille, Niagara and elsewhere, and wherever there was a French settlement there was a militia organization, for under the law of fiefs every able-bodied colonist was a member of the Provincial Militia. Immediately succeeding the conquest there was a cer tain in¿ux of immigration into Upper Canada, but it remained for the great upheaval of the American Revolution to furnish the province with her first set tlementof any great account. The story of the United Empire Loyalists, of their pathetic and noble loyalty, of their sacrifices, their hardships, and their settlement in what is now the Province of Ontario, is a part of the national history of this country, and a part which, it is hoped, will never be forgotten by the people of Canada.
