The Nova Scotians Of African Origin Called Refugee Negroes, 3,600 runaways from Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Louisiana, and Georgia, walked to the British lines and obtain their freedom. They were evacuated from the United States during the War of 1812, about two thousand were sent to Nova Scotia and seven hundred to Trinidad. The flux continued with several hundred leaving the U.S. in 1814 and 1815. The refugees faced a difficult situation in Canada: they did not receive adequate land and were subjected to mounting racism. The authorities planned to deport them all to Sierra Leone and Trinidad. Only ninety-five migrated to the West Indian island. Today, the majority of the Nova Scotians of African origin trace their ancestry back to the Refugee Negroes
