The American Revolution was also known as the American War of Independence. It was also known as the war between the Kingdom of Great Britain and 13 British Colonies on the North American Continent. The exact number of all American Soldiers who died in The American Revolution is unknown. More than 5,000 blacks fought against the British to win The American Revolution. Many black Soldiers risked death and persecution from U.S. troops by fighting with the British Army. The king, during The American Revolution, was George III. Loyalists were American colonists who remained loyal to the Kingdom of Great Britain (and the British monarchy) during and after The American Revolution. They were often referred to as Tories, Royalists, or King's Men by the Patriots. After fighting in the war, black Soldiers, including veterans in the Continental Army, still were not recognized as qualified Soldiers in the military because of the racial divide. An estimated 100,000 blacks escaped, died, or were killed during The American Revolution.
