WHAT 10 DEFEATED NATIONS PLANNED TO DO HAD THEY WON THE WAR
1. GREAT BRITAIN (American War for Independence, 1776-1781)
If Great Britain had defeated the American rebels, it would have restored its authority by assigning a British governor to each of the 13
American colonies and disbanding all revolutionary governments, including the Continental Congress. British Prime Minister Lord Frederick North intended to be lenient with the rebels, granting pardons to all except the most prominent military and congressional leaders. On the issue of taxation, North expected to effect conciliation by offering the colonial legislatures the right to raise their own taxes rather than be taxed directly by Parliament. However, the rebels would have been forced to compensate American Loyalists fully for their losses during the war. If the British had won, they also planned to limit American territorial expansion by giving the Ohio River and Great Lakes region to Canada.
