Who fought in the Revolutionary war against the British and opposed the Declaration of Independence?

John Dickinson, a delegate from Pennsylvania would not vote for or sign the Declaration of Independence. This is because he felt that the colonies would be better if they reconciled their grievances with Great Britain instead of declaring independence from it. Whether he fought in the Revolutionary War is not entirely clear. Some histories state he enlisted as a private and fought at the Battle of Brandywine. Others state he served briefly as a Colonel. And another has said that Thomas McKean, the governor of Delaware, also one of the signers of the Declaration appointed Dickinson as a Brigadier General. In either event his service, if any was short.
