ABSTRACT
The article describes the divisions in the U.S. and their conflicts during the American Revolution. The country was divided into the Loyalists, who were against the Revolution, and the Tories, who remained a subject of King George III. The Loyalists signed oaths laid out by Royal Governor of New York William Tryon. Patriot and Loyalist militias would raid one another's communities and were involved in violent incidents like tarring and feathering. Also recounted is the civil war that was arising between the Dutch Tories and Dutch Rebels in New Jersey.
