Sabine has gathered in one place biographical accounts of thousands of Loyalists of the American Revolution, from all thirteen of the rebellious colonies. He has outlined the activities which defined them as Loyalists, and has traced many of them to the Maritime Provinces of Canada and to England.  

The author prefaces the biographical material with an historical essay, which outlines the political background to the Revolution, which set the conditions under which some of the colonist chose to remain loyal to the Crown. The essay then describes the treatment of these Loyalists by the "Whigs," as Sabine calls the revolutionaries, and the lives of the Loyalists in the aftermath of the Revolution.

The biographical accounts range from a few lines to a few pages, gathering in one place everything that Sabine was able to discover about each of the Loyalists. He always includes information on the activities of the biographees during the Revolution, that led to their designation as Loyalists. Where he can, he provides information on their residences and activities after leaving the thirteen colonies.

The biographies are presented in two alphabetical sequences, the first of which comprises those Loyalists on whom Sabine was able to unearth a substantial amount of information, and the second of which includes brief data on hundreds more of lesser known Loyalists.
