Revolutionaries may have come from across the spectrum, but the book doesn't address the one group who weren't Revolutionaries.

The Tories (who were loyal to England and the King) who made up a very large proportion of the American colonial population. Many estimates put their figure up to 20-25% of the population.

And that doesn't mean that the rest were Revolutionaries. A very large percentage were simply neutral. A number of historians put the number of Revolutionaries (I would say Patriots, but the Tories thought that they were the patriots) averaged around 30-35%, no more than 40%.

A great number of Tories fled the country after the war, fleeing to England, Canada, the British West Indies and Australia.

Just too many inaccuracies, biased interpretations, Things out of context, etcetera, for me.
