Who were the Loyalists and the Patriots?

During The Revolutionary War, people either sided with the king, loyalists, or people who wanted freedom, patriots. Neutralists were the group who sided with any, they simply did not really care!

Who lived in the colonies but did not fight the British?

The American colonists who still supported the British were called loyalists or Tories (for the dwindling Tory political party, used to ridicule conservative politicians close to George III). It was difficult for any colonist to remain "neutral" when pressured by both sides, who considered anyone not "for" them to be "against" them.

Who were colonists who was undecided about independence from Britain?

Colonists who opposed Britain and wanted freedom were patriots. Colonists who were loyal to Britain were loyalists or Tories. Most of the colonists wanted or didn't want freedom, so there really was no need to a name.

Approximately what fraction of the American public was likely to remail Loyalist during the Revolution?

Perhaps as many as 65% were either loyalists or neutral with mixed allegiences. Of the 35% who were sympathetic to the revolution, only 10% were prepared to die for their beliefs. Remember, only 77 men stood at Lexington to face the British who were enroute to find Adams and Henry and seize the peoples weapons. I imagine that many people today feel that it could never happen again. But, it is inevitable that as loyalists and tyranical rule grows like a cancer, they will inevitably come once more for the weapons. And once again, it will take no more than 77 men to light the fires of a new resistance. Then, the true patriots, those who are willing to defend and protect our republic and our constitution from tyranical rule and those who abuse the rights of the people, will eventually prevail. And as before, the tyrants and those that support them, will underestimate them,and their love of freedom, liberty, and the republic. These patriots are the very ones who will step forward, knowing the risks, and defend it with their lives if necessary, from those who have been responsible for the attempt to destroy the very foundations upon which it was built. As Patrick Henry said, " I regret I only have one life to give for my country." America will ALWAYS have men such as Henry to ensure our Republic will forever stand. The tories and loyalists will quietly laugh at them, but the patriots will have the last laugh. I find that comforting. Today, 80% of the people are loyalists, oblivious to the damage being done to our Republic. They sit and watch quietly and believe nothing is worth personal risk and will sit on the sidelines waiting to see who wins. It is always the few that shed blood for the many. Some things never change. Thomas Jefferson
