  • Quartering act of 1765

  • Part of Georgia Becomes France

    The French, seeing this as a time to get land without making a powerful enemy, decide to move in on the U.S.A because they were no longer protected by the British. The Americans were unprepared for this attack and the French met little resistance as they advanced.
