To survive?No it was only called a rebellion after bunker hill.If your in rebellion then you would have been killed after being captured/surrendered.But it wasnt declared a rebellion untill bunker hill.They wouldn't have gotten killed if they just surrendered before it was called a rebellion.
From how I see it before bunker hill
1)Surrender,well you arent really in rebellion so they cant really do much since you havent killed or rebelled yet,maybe some prison time for gathering an armed force.
2)Fight on and have it end up as a rebellion where if your captured/caught you will definately be killed.
Though from what it seems,we just have different view points and neither of us will budge,its like if we had an argument if god really existed or not.So lets just end it here and agree to disagree.
If youd like a different topic to debate about,I'd be happy to debate about something else.
