Nothing. at the time of the war the English were untested in spreading their authority as far and as wide as they could. The Americas were a source of income for them and they felt that they had the power to keep it.

The American Revolution and the war for independence could have been avoided if the British had decided to treat their American colonies as if they were a close part of the Great Britain. Glad-handing powerful colonists and treating the colonies as a unified part the British Empire. That the Americans could be true-blue Brits was discovered when the French and Indian War was fought against the French colonists and their Native allies.Steps to make American colonies into purely British colonies would have been:

1. Enlisting many colonists into the British army as much as possible;

2. No special taxes to hurt the American colonies;

3. Representation of each of the 13 colonies in the British parliament;and

4. Restricting Immigration to the colonies for mostly British people.
