Gary Nash's The Unknown American Revolution. I use it in my grad seminar.  M

I'm glad to see this thread about Loyalists because I'd like to raise a
question or two.

Here is one of them:  Why did so many in the 13 colonies support the
Revolution?

I understand why many in the colonial elite did so. They became the new
ruling elite, replacing British governors, Parliament, etc.

But why did so many of the common people support it?
