The King's Royal Yorkers is the largest of several Living History groups that are proud members of the Canadian Museum of Applied Military History.

This historical project recreates Loyalist soldiers and their families who fled to Canada to form the first Loyalist regiment raised on Canadian soil. The American war of 1775 to 1783 saw the King's Royal Yorkers on active service with the Northern Department.

The recreated King's Royal Yorkers is committed to bringing alive Canada's unique role during this conflict. Explore our site to learn more about our group and our historical mission.
