I've now read a couple books about the American Revolution and the founding fathers. I don't think, however, I read anything about colonial assemblies or the continental congresses pushing for representation in the British Parliament. It seems like it might have been a way to have taxation WITH representation without separating from the mother country.
Was this ever considered by either side? We already have answers for why it wasn't ultimately done, but what proposals were made when, and by whom?
I don't think this is a duplicate as I'm asking if there were specific proposals or evidence of them and their context. Also, the answer of the suggested duplicate seems to focus on the causes of the war and not the issue I'm asking about.
