Didn't loyalists and "patriots" square off in 1776...some sided with the British, and quite a few shot at the British.
Are you still asking about the 17th century?
Shaun -- I think your teacher wants you to read the various quotes and make your own decision. And remember, you originally asked about the 16th century -- which is the 1600s.
From the way the heading is worded, I assume it means within each colony, not between colonies.
Umm I'm pretty sure I asked about the 17th century. But anyways thanks alot Ms.Sue

Sydney -- The 13 colonies of Great Britain declared their independence in 1776 and became the United States of America.
Oops -- a typo -- I meant the 17th century. Sorry.
That's right -- you asked about the 17th century. That century was the 1600s.
Think about it -- we are now in the 21st century -- but this is the year 2008.
