Gideon White, Loyalist.  First Edition, ARCHIBALD, Mary
5 ARCHIBALD, Mary Gideon White, Loyalist. First Edition
Shelburne Historical Society, Shelburne, 1975, 1975 
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.
"Published with the assistance of The Nova Scotia Museum as part of the Cultural Services Program of the Department of Education."

Printed by McCurdy Printing, Halifax.

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;
5. What is War?;
6. What is Peace?
