1763 - The French and Indian War ends, resulting in France ceding Canada to Great Britain. The Proclamation Act of 1763 is passed, transferring New France to Britain, as well as several other territorial adjustments. As well, the act introduced the Proclamation Line, which separated the Thirteen Colonies from a newly-created Indian Territory. The Line would not be indefinitely imposed; rather, colonies would need formal approval from the Crown to create treaties with or purchase Native lands.
1765 - The Stamp Act is passed in the British American colonies. There is massive uproar in the colonies. As a result, the notorious Townshend Acts are scrapped. In its stead, the British parliament passes the Quebec Act, which gave the Quebecois more rights including religious freedoms, but also established a non-elective governing body, along with harsh taxes on imported goods. In Britain, this act was seen as a response to constant conflict in Quebec, while in Quebec it was seen as collective punishment.
1769 - French settlers protest the harsh taxation in Quebec. The Quebec Uprising takes place. The Thirteen Colonies respond overwhelmingly on the side of Britain.
1770 - The Quebec Uprising ends in British victory, even with support from France.
1789 - In France, the Storming of the Bastille is unsuccessful, and many revolutionaries are arrested and guillotined. The French Rebellion begins, but with little support. This is mostly due to the failure of a successful republican revolution in the Americas.
1792 - The British confirm their presence in the Oregon Country after discussions between Spanish and British delegates.
1794 - The French Rebellions end in an uneasy victory for the Crown. Many of the revolutionaries are persecuted or exiled. Louis XVI remains king, albeit under a constitutional monarchy, and with much of his powers stripped. The uprisings, constant devastating wars, and crippling debt would ultimately bring France into a period of isolationism.
