Book Description

Joseph Galloway (1731-1803) was an American Loyalist during the American Revolution, after serving as delegate to the First Continental Congress from Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Provincial Assembly from 1757 to 1775 and served as Speaker of the House from 1766 to 1774. Galloway was a member of the Continental Congress in 1774, where he proposed a compromise plan for Union with Great Britain which would provide the colonies with their own parliament subject to the Crown. He urged reform of the imperial administration and was critical of the trade laws, the Stamp Act of 1765, and the Townshend Acts enacted in 1767. His works include: Proposed Union Between Great Britain and the Colonies (1774) and The Claim of the American Loyalists (1788).
