In what ways could the American Revolution be considered a Civil War?

The Patriots opposed the Loyalists.
Those who supported the King were known as Loyalists. Those who supported separation from the King were called Patriots. An agreement could not be reached between the two sides, and in 1776 the Continental Congress officially declared the thirteen colonies free from Britain and her rule.
Not only was the war a revolution, but it was also a civil war between the colonists.
