The Whigs wanted Independence.
No, they were actually one in the same. The 2 main political parties in England at the time were Tories (conservative) and Whigs (liberal). The same 2 political parties existed in Colonial America only they were divided along different lines, the Tories being loyal to the throne and the Whigs (being the smart ones) wanted independence.
The whigs were a political party in England along with the tories.
False. You are thinking of England, maybe. There never was a Tory party in the US and the Whigs broke up about 1855.
