    At the point where he realizes he never moved anywhere and that his family has been living in America for four or five generations and that he's never even fcuking SEEN the British Isles.

    Loyalists were older, better established, and more likely to resist innovation than the Patriots. Loyalists felt that the Crown was the legitimate government and resistance to it was morally wrong, while the Patriots felt that morality was on their side because the British government had violated the constitutional rights of Englishmen.

    After 4 or 5 generations of living in the colonies apart from Britain, and then realizing what a nut mad King George was.

    it was a new life hopefully , surprisingly Britain wasnt all sunshine and roses for the majority ,and there were other nations the Dutch the French the Spanish involved, so it was an assortment of peoples and religions many fled England because of Religion it was brutal and cruel then and a hard life this new land offered freedom of worship and that meant everything to many , there rivalry with the French and Dutch at war with Britain  so it wasnt purely a British concern

    The simplest answer would be that once the Americans declared independence, anyone who swore allegiance to the new nation would - for all intents and purposes, have essentially declared him or herself to be an American. It might come as a shock to you to learn that it's possible for a Briton to renounce his or her citizenship today and take up another.

    The last great human migration was when Europeans immigrated to North America in search a better life and committed genocide on the native population.

    It wasn't a first generation thing, the colonies existed for over a hundred years before the Revolution,,, the people fighting the British considered themselves Americans because they were born and raised in America, not Britain.

    Interesting little bit of trivia,,, there were actually more Americans fighting for the British than there were fighting against them.

    The American war of Independence is over. We let you guys think you won for the sake of peace. Now we are best mates and there will never be such a conflict again.
