What are facts about Adam Smith?
Born in Portland, Oregon, Smith formed a love of reading and writing early in his life. As he noted on his Web site, he received one of the most memorable presents from his parents for his fifth birthday: "My parents gave me an old manual typewriter that weighed more than I did! It was my favorite possession. I spent hours in my room clacking away on that old typewriter. Of course, when I was five, I didn't know how to spell and I barely knew how to read, but I loved the sound and the look of the letters on the crisp white paper."

Asked in American Revolution, Abigail Adams
Who are the loyalists and the patriots?
From an American point of view the Patriots were the English colonists wanting to break away from England while The Loyalists were the English colonists who opposed the revolution against King George III and his government. The Patriots formed Militia units and the Continental Army. The Militia units were attached to the Continental Army but generally served shorter terms, were poorly trained, and poorly equipped. The regulars of the Continental Army were better trained, more disciplined, served longer than the the Militia, and bore the brunt of the heavy duty fighting. Both groups, together, fought the British Army. Initially the Patriot forces were provisioned with the aid of the French King. Eventually, France provided a Naval Fleet, and ground troops. The British Army was from the Great Britain, plus Hessians, a hired group of professional soldiers from the German state of Hesse. The Loyalists provided some units to the British Army. The bulk of the British Army were troops from England. The British Army generals were from Great Britain. The combined forces of the Patriots and the French surrounded the British Army in Yorktown Virginia and forced them to surrender. The last English Army was under siege in New York and surrendered. With the successful conclusion of the American Revolution many Loyalists fled to Canada, and some returned to England.
