Under the influence of the American Revolution, the Patriots wanted a more democratic form of government. The opening shot of this revolution might be co—considered to be the manifesto published by Joan van der Capellen tot den Pol, the founder of the Patriots in 1781: In 1785 there was a open rebellion by the Patriots, which took the form of an armed insurrection by local militias determined to defend municipal democracies in certain Dutch towns. From 1780 to 1787, Dordrecht was home to the Patriots faction which intended to remove the hereditary Stadtholder position held by the House of Orange-Nassau.
