Yes, the American Revolution could have been prevented. King George III could have read the documets like the Suffolk and Leicester Resolves that were sent to him, rather than ignoring him. Then, he would know that the colonists were still loyal to the King at the beginning. All they wanted was a say in their government and in their taxes. If Britain didn't ignore the several peaceful protests the way may not have happened. Then again, the patriots made several mistakes too. If they just payed taxes like everyone else Britain wouldn't have found the need to put a tax on so many things and to raise the taxes they already had.
