This has to do with when the English settlers moved from England/Britian to the New World. "How did such loyal englishmen become a "rebellious group of deliquents"??

  • government -

    The settlers obviously moved because they thought they'd have a better life in the New World. They wanted economic and/or religious freedom and stability. Most of the American revolutionaries had not been born in England, and their ancestors had emigrated two or more generations before. Although a few colonists moved to Canada, most felt much more loyalty to America than to England.
