cdviii Galloway was probably the best known, most important, persuasive and influential loyalist. From 1766 through 1775 he was Speaker of the Pennsylvania Assembly and was a delegate to the First Continental Congress. His proposed scheme to allow the colonists to govern themselves while remaining loyal to Britain having failed to win support from either side, Galloway assisted the tories in creating a militia and a political organization. He returned England in 1778, never to return to the colonies. Anderson, American Political Theory, 140-41, 205; John Ferling. The Loyalist Mind: Joseph Galloway and the American Revolution.
