If you and your family were a Patriot in this time period and a British soldier was asking you if you were a Loyalist or a Patriot, would you still recognize yourself as a Patriot, knowing that you were endangering yourself and your family? Why or why not.

Put yourself into the position of a citizen of the colonies. Once the war ended and Britain recognized the U.S. as an independent country, what would be your emotions? Explain.

Regardless of the situation, I would still identify myself as a Patriot and fight the soldier, because I believe that at that time period, it meant more to fight for what you beleived in, rather than let someone intimidate you into beleiving something else.

I would be extremely proud of those who faught in the battles, and very joyful, due to the fact that together, we, as Americans, collectively faught for our independences and succeeded.
