Tories vs. Rebels

If Tory or Loyalist was the proper name for those supporting the King during the Revolutionary war, what were the rebels called (besides Traitors and Patriots, that is)? I'm looking for the "formal" name, as opposed to what might show up in the average leaflet...

Edit: it seems I'm looking for a "neutral" name -- If it's 1777, do they call themselves Americans yet? What do the Torys or Loyalists call them (in polite company)? And what would a neutral 3rd party call them?

Thanks folks!
