A couple of reasons people wanted to stay a loyalist during the ARE (American Revolution) was that:

1. they might still have family in England and if they joined the rebels, they wouldn't be able to keep in contact with their family and it would be very difficult to switch sides after the war.

2. also their spouse might be a loyalist so you would be considered a loyalist also

They were loyal to the king of Britain!!:)

Some maybe feared the power of England and therefore stayed loyal

Another reason is as long as American colonies were closely tied to England, the great British Navy would protect American products.

British troops were protecting the colonies along the Appalachian Mountains.

They were willing to pay taxes in order to pay for the British troops in the colonies.

why did they stay loyal even after the war? Their side lost and they were afraid of being seen as traitors by the winners.

Answer 1

Because the loyalist thought they could gain things like money and land if Brittan won.

Answer 2

Contrary to how the American Revolution is portrayed in most American schools, the Revolutionary position was really not the majority opinion in the United States prior to and during much of the American Revolution. Most Americans were quite content to be British colonists. The British had successfully protected the colonies during the Seven Years War (known in the USA as the French and Indian War). Additionally, most Southerners preferred to have a good and stable trading partner like Britain form whom they could depend on consistent purchase orders and shipment protection. This pro-British attitude in the South was actually the reason why the Continental Congress chose George Washington, a Virginian, to lead the US Army. Otherwise, there would be little reason for Southerners to support the Revolution.

Cities in general were loyalist bastions as well. New York was well-known during the American Revolution for having many pro-British loyalists due to the incredible amount of commerce and trade that went on in that city. Many New Yorkers were quite proud when British General Clinton made Fort Tryon (in north Manhattan) his headquarters to manage the war in the North. Boston and Providence were really the only two cities that were wholeheartedly galvanized revolutionaries.
