American founding fathers question?
By definition would it be fair to say they where all traitors who committed treason? I am not saying the cause was wrong I am just saying by definition they all were traitors right?

According to the British government, yes. This is an excellent example of how the heroes of one side are the villains of the other.

Yes, they were, until the treaty in which Britain recognized American independence. Then they weren't. As the old saying goes:
Treason doth never prosper.
What's the reason?
For if it prosper,
None dare call it treason.
