2 1a. What kind of “advance” or adjustment might the British have made to halt the escalation of the colonial rebellion? A commonwealth status with EQUALITY within the empire

3 1b. What kind of retreat would the colonists have had to make to be acceptable to Britain? Accept taxation and a status short of independence

Political: explicit subordination in the Declaratory Act, implicit in the Stamp Act & others without representation Economic: British intention to keep colonies in an economic subordinate position as intolerable
