The British did not at all approve of the way the colonists were fighting. Colonists were using what is known as guerilla tactics. The British believed in open fighting, in lines, on fields. The colonists were attacking from cover, and quickly disappearing. The British found this ungentlemanly.

Why do you think many colonists remained Loyalists after the first fighting with British troops broke out?

The Boston Port Acts (the intolerable acts) had one factor of five factor's quartering act. This meant that the colonists had to house the Redcoats in their homes and provide Beer, boot wax and bedding. With the British in their homes it made it hard for colonists to smuggle rum sugar and molasses in because of the Sugar Act of 1764. That is probably why 1/3 of the colonists were Tories (Loyalists).Because the loyalists didn't want to become mean to British peoples and get into a war with gayyy dudeeeeeeeeeee
