It is a debatable fact since the number of Loyalists would have included those wary of antagonizing their Patriot neighbors. However, it is doubtful that the Colonial Army could have survived without the support of the majority of the residents of the respective colonies. There were probably an equal number of businesses within the British-controlled areas that dared not openly support independence.
