Summary Choosing Sides: Loyalists in Revolutionary America shows us that America's original colonies were not nearly as united behind the concept of forming free, independent states as our society's collective memory would have us believe. There were, in fact, numerous colonists, slaves and Native Americans who counted themselves among the Loyalists: those who never wanted to sever ties with the English crown and who viewed revolution as an unnatural and unlawful mistake.
