Muster Roll of Colonel Stephen Blucke's Company at Birchtown, Shelburne County: A Black Settlement in Nova Scotia, 1784

Birchtown was one of several Black communities established in Nova Scotia between 1782 and 1784 by African Americans who had supported the British during the American Revolution. However, local hostility and difficult conditions eventually resulted in nearly half of the inhabitants of Birchtown leaving in 1792 for Sierra Leone in West Africa.
