In memory of his grandfather, the late Sgt. George "Buster" Barton (1917-1995), Mr. Allister Barton traced his family tree to the Black Pioneers Corps (a non-combat military group during the American War of Independence), and Black Loyalists of Brinley Town (a former Black settlement in Digby, NS).


Join the journey of his Barton lineage and explore a 250-year-old mystery that will bring Allister's family tree to life.
