Best Answer

The Patriots rebelled because they were angry about British taxes. The British were short of money after the French and Indian War, so they taxed colonists and English people to regain what they had lost. The colonists believed that this was unfair, and that only their representatives could tax them. They wanted to have a representative in Parliament, too. They protested violently and peacefully, but soon it got out of hand and it led to a war....thus, the Revolutionary War! (or the American Revolution).

People were patriots in the colonial times for different reasons. One was that they saw what people were doing to the loyalists and were afraid that that might happent to them. Another reason is that they belived that what the king was doing to them by taxing them was wrong and they wanted to be separate from the king and his taxes.
