“Eighteen of Fort Haldimand's Men” by Stephen Davidson.

In the September and October issues of United Empire Loyalists of Canada news letter Loyalist Trails is an article “Eighteen of Fort Haldimand's Men” by Stephen Davidson.

“Carleton Island was the Gibralter of Lake Ontario; its Fort Haldimand linked the frontier with the settlements of the St. Lawrence River and guarded those settlements against possible invasion. Eighteen loyalists recounted their connection to the island during their testimony at the Royal Commission on the Losses and Services of American Loyalists (RCLSAL).” Stephen Davidson
