Yes. I'm just using British as an example. I think I said this back in my first post.
France's colonies were called "New France". And I'm sure Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian holdings in the Americas had their own names. And the people there were just normal citizens (subjects).
Bottom line there was absolutely no difference between the colonies that revolted and those that didn't... until they did.
Revolutionaries could easily have known, grown up with, been family and blood relations to the red coats they were fighting.
