In “Tories”, Thomas B. Allen, author of “George Washington, Spymaster”, provides a sweeping dramatic history of the Americans who chose to side with the British in the revolution. New York City and Philadelphia were Tory strongholds through much of the war. Conflicting visions of America pitted neighbor against neighbor and caused 80,000 Tories to relocate, often in Canada.
