sep 5, 1774 - Quebec act passed; First Continental Conference

Description:

The Quebec Act extended the boundaries of Quebec which made it so Americans could no longer settle farther up north. These places included Ile d'Anticosti, Iles de la Madeleine, Labrador and the Indian territory between the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers to the south of the Great Lakes. This fact made the Americans consider the Quebec acts one of the intolerable acts. It also made the French language and Roman Catholicism official. The Quebec act like most acts that were established by the British Parliament further angered the colonists but it kept most of the Canadians loyal to the British crown. The first continental conference was the first meeting of 12 delegates from the 13 colonies (excluding Georgia). They met to talk about their outrage regarding the taxes and just Britain in general. The continental congress meetings were the reason behind the organization of the Patriots.
