Loyalists, Fence-sitters, and Patriots

Loyalists, Fence-sitters, and Patriots

It is impossible to know the exact number of American colonists who favored or opposed independence.\n\nFor years it was widely believed that one third favored the Revolution, one third opposed it, and one third were undecided. This stems from an estimate made by John Adams in his personal writings in 1815.
