Gideon White, Loyalist.  First Edition, ARCHIBALD, Mary

ARCHIBALD, Mary. Gideon White, Loyalist. [Shelburne] : (Shelburne Historical Society, August 1975). First Printing. Pp (6),1-64,(4), + 8-page central section of illustrations. Includes a genealogical chart at rear. 8vo, white cardcovers, with the Union Jack in colour on front cover.

Vaison, Nova Scotia Past and Present : A Bibliography and Guide, p.58.

"Nearly two hundred years ago thousands of Loyalists of the American Revolution migrated to British North America Most of them initially came to Nova Scotia, the largest single group leaving New York in ships that finaliy dropped anchorat Port Roseway, the tiny community lying on the magnificent waterway now known as Shelburne Harbour.

For a time their community was the largest in British North America, but in a few years for many complicated reasons, the Port Roseway Associates' dream of establishing a capital port of North America began to fade. Many of these Loyalists moved on to the island that is now Prince Edward Island, to the region that is now the province of Ontario, to the region tnat is now the province of New Brunswick, to other parts of Nova Scotia or to England. Some returned to their former homes in the new United States of America.

But some of the Loyalists who came to Port Roseway stayed in the town that was renamed Shelburne by Governor John Parr of Nova Scotia in the summer or 1783 wnen he made his first visit to the settlement that many thought would become a thriving centre of commerce and government. This is the story of one of these Loyalists. Gideon White came to make his home here in the spring of 1784 and made this place the centre of his life till he died here in 1833. Some of his descendants still live in our town. Others have made their homes in Liverpool, in Windsor and in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Some reside in the United States. Perhaps this story will spark accounts of other Loyalists of the American Revolution who stayed in our province and who, with their descendants helped build, within the frame-work of non-violence and membership in the British Empire, the democratic province of Nova Scotia, the Dominion of Canada and the British Commonwealth of Nations." - the preface.

Contents:
1. Gideon White, Loyalist;
2. Shelburne;
3. The Land;
4. The Family;

The Maritime Provinces were one of the world's leading shipbuilding areas. By the endof the nineteenth century, over 26,000 vessels had been built. Not all wer e for local owners; in the peak years of the 1860s, the Maritimes supplied nearly one-quarter of British shipping. "This pictorial history offers a lively and authoratative account of the development of Maritime sailing ships, from the privateers of the eighteenth century to the magnificent clipper ships of the nineteenth century and the swift schoohners of the early twentieth century. It covers not only the ships themselves, but the men who built, owned and sailed them.

12 ARSENAULT, Chris. Blowback : A Canadian History of Agent Orange and the War at Home.
Fernwood Publishing, Halifax & Winnipeg , 2009, ISBN:9781552662960 
ARSENAULT, Chris. Blowback : A Canadian History of Agent Orange and the Warat Home. Halifax & Winnipeg : Fernwood Publishing, (2009). Second Printing . Pp (8),1-115,(5). Illustrated. Map. Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "The village of Enniskillen, a sleepy cluster of a few dozen houses in New Brunswick’s Queens County, has never been invaded by a foreign power. But during the 1950s to 1970s, the village was ground zero for a different kind of offensive, this one launched by the American and Canadian military against its own people with the deadly dioxin Agent Orange. Between 1956 and 1984 the Canadian military and its private subcontractors sprayed more than 1 million litres of rainbow herbicides around New Brunswick. The American military was invited to test Agent Purple and other toxins on Canadian soil after the chemicals had been banned by the U.S. Congress. This is the story of a war coming home; a story of the military and economic currents that allowed Agent Orange to blow through trees and into rivers in New Brunswick. More than anything, it’s a story of soldiers, civilians and local residents who blew back against the government and companies who poisoned them." - from the back cover. Very good. 9.00
