sitters

They usually lived in England but they also could live in the Mid-Atlantic and still be loyal to England. the loyalists agreed with the taxes and loved how King George III ruled and still had high income. They were afraid that they would lose all their money without Britain controlling the colonies.
Loyalists were colonists who believed the British government did have the authority to tax and control the colonies. They also believed that the colonists needed Britain to govern and protect them. They wanted the colonies to be part of Britain.

The Fence-sitters made the largest group of people. they were usually from Britain. And had middle income. They didn't agree with how the king was ruling but they also didn't want to be killed by the British.
King George III sent out more British troops out to the colonies, declared that anyone who speaks out against him was going against the law and could be persecuted and that there could be no more people undecided.
Therefore all the Fence-sitters got kicked off because of King George III and after that the Patriot group got larger because most of the Fence-sitters went there.
Three strengths the Patriots had over the British were :
The Patriots knew the land better
They were dedicated to their cause
Most of the Fence-sitters joined their group.
Three weaknesses the Patriots had in comparison to the British:
They were not trained soldiers

They had little supplies
They were going against an undefeated army.
Four reasons they felt they shouldn't declare independence with Britain:
The Loyalists wanted the colonies to become a part of Britain
Without a king the colonies would be disorganized
They felt that Britain was the strongest nation
The Loyalists felt that Britain would give the Patriots financial support
Three strengths the British have in comparison to the Patriots.
The British were undefeated and trained
The British were wealthy and educated
The British had more weapons
