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.
