When reenacting or acting as a historical interpreter, its good to have a few historical dates and stories to share. This series will publish a few.

June 22, 1774 – THE QUEBEC ACT established the Royal Province of Quebec and expanded its territory into much of what is now southern Ontario, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, and parts of Minnesota.  Removed any reference to the Protestant faith in its oath of allegiance and formally instituted Catholic faith as recognized state religion.  These provisions of the Quebec Act were seen by many American colonists as a first step to strip the colonies of their elected assemblies. It seemed to void the land claims of the colonies by granting most of the Ohio Country to the province of Quebec.  Many also saw the “establishment” of Catholicism in the colony as an affront.
