It is not generally known that many of the refugees from the American Revolution, generally referred to as the United Empire Loyalists, represented the one-third of the American population who had tried to remain neutral in the conflict. Pacifist Quaker Nicholas Austin was one such neutralist. He led a group to found a settlement around Lake Memphremagog in Quebec called Gibraltar Point where they could avoid harassment by Loyalists and others. The village of Austin and a spirit of ethnic peace are his legacy. In French: Nicholas Austin: Pionnier en Estrie
