Best Answer

The soldiers were called Yankees (from the name for colonials in general), and Continentals (also the name applied to the first US army). British loyalists considered them rebels or traitors, but the usual term for the Revolutionary fighters is "patriots", because they identified more with their colonial homes than with their British heritage.
