Not everyone was on the side of the
Patriots. Many colonists remained loyal to the king. Some had family
ties in Britain. Some were concerned that the
Patriots did not stand a chance. Some were alarmed at the violence
and the chaos.
After the end of the American
Revolution, it is estimated that over 60,000 loyalists chose to
leave America. Of those, many emigrated to Canada.
