Overview

Peter Oliver: the Loyalist Perspective on the American Revolution by Louis Garafalo

Peter Oliver was the last chief justice of the Massachusetts court system prior to the start of the American Revolution. An ardent pro-British Loyalist (aka Tory), Oliver was a member of the socially elite political circle that was about to be displaced. He left Boston along with a thousand other Loyalists in March of 1776 and spent the last fifteen years of his life in England. During his exile he wrote an account of his experiences during the Revolutionary times, offering a biting and insightful perspective on the leading Patriot figures, almost all of whom he new well. History is truly written by the victors and this book attempts to give the perspective of the Loyalists, the "losers" of the American Revolution, through the experiences of this most interesting man.
