In order to understand the causes of the American Revolution through the eyes of a New England Tory, an examination of the conditions which made a Tory is necessary. A Tory, or a Loyalist, was a person who remained loyal to the British government during the American Revolution. More generally, a Tory usually desired the maintenance of the established government, especially during the time of a revolution. Thus, persons who remained loyal to George III, supported the British government, and later went into exile for their beliefs were Tories.
