User: True or False The colonists who supported independence were known as Loyalists.

Weegy: After the French and Indian War ended in 1763, Americans in the 13 colonies became divided in their feelings toward Great Britain. About 1/3 of the colonists supported England. They wanted to remain English and loyal to King George III of England. [ They called themselves Loyalists or Tories. Another 1/3 of the colonists wanted independence. They wanted to break away from Great Britain and form a new country. Those who supported a revolution were called Patriots. That left about 1/3 of the colonists who did not take sides and remained neutral. ]
