On July 4th, 1776, the United States declared its independence from Britain, a monumental move that many at the time thought was a bad idea. The new book, “Resisting Independence” by Fresno State history professor Brad Jones, explores the reasons why British loyalism deepened for some following the War of Independence. Jones spoke with Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock about the popularity of loyalism in the revolutionary British Atlantic.
