The American Revolution was an epic struggle that split families, oftentimes with brothers, fathers and sons supporting different sides. The King's Royal Regiment of New York played no small role in both the conflict and later by providing men and their families to help establish and expand British settlement in Canada. Gavin Watt's first book on this topic, The King's Royal Regiment of New York  has been significantly revised in this new edition. This new volume  provides much new content, including corrections, additions and newly discovered sources that have come to light during the 22 years of research since the earlier book. Reviews of 2006 Edition "This book proves the point of why we must continue to research and not accept earlier works as the definitive sources. Gavin is well known for the quality of his research in his early books and he has outdone himself with this new volume." Kathie Orr U.E., Past President of Toronto Branch, of The United Empire Loyalists Association of Canada. "The extra effort put into this book places the quality and desire to purchase it at the top of my list. A lot of research was done here and the author must be recognized as the number one authority on The King's Royal Regiment of New York. I would make this book a must item for your Loyalist library. Great job!" Paul J. Bunnell, FACG, UE. Publisher, The Loyalist Quarterly. A couple of the many enhancements in the 2006 edition: 1) Every piece of information in the Master Roll about veterans of the original regiment Roll has a coded source attributed to it. 2) With some trepidation, the names of many of the men's wives not found in military sources have been provided. The history of the regiment, and of the men of The King's Royal Regiment has great significance to those with an interest in the American Revolutionary War and the subsequent resettlement of United Empire Loyalists and others, many of whom migrated to Canada.
