8. Wait - wha? All 11K of them were seditious?
And part of the problem getting them to sign the treaty of loyalty to the crown was that (a) they could not read and (b) they did not speak English

It would be like going to Baja California, and telling the farmers that they were now Americans, and that they had to sign oaths of loyalty, and do this all in English without an interpreter.
