After the conquest they soon became the most staunch supporters of the authority of George III and through the Church the British conqueror was able to reach the people. When the American Revolution began, the bishops were strenuous for British connection and from the pulpits came solemn warnings against the Americans.

After a stay of only two days with these worthy supporters, the King marched out to Barnet Common, to give the Earl of Warwick battle. And now it was to be seen, for the last time, whether the King or the King-Maker was to carry the day.

"I think we are now well started on the way to becoming useful members of the Army." "What do you think of our new leader?" one of Bert Dodge's late supporters asked that young man after the meeting had broken up. "We're going to have a boot-lick president," growled Bert.
