Best Answer

During 1775, colonists were forced to decide if they would support the rebellion or the King. Most Americans believe that if they had lived in that time, they would have supported the rebellion, despite the very real threat of death from Britain for treason.

Why are only citizens of the US called American while Mexico and Canada are also on the North American continent?

The terms "Americans" or "American colonists" were used by the British way back when the USA was only a colony of Britain. After the USA was formed, people living in this new country continued to be referred to as Americans. So American people did not choose to call themselves that. If anyone presumed that people in the territory of what is now the USA were the only "Americans," then it was the British. The term is not exclusively used by US citizens either. Many other countries refer to US Citizens as "Americans" also.
