In 1773, one of the defining moments in American history happened - the Boston Tea Party. Immediately, the legislature in England started passing what they called Coercive Acts, which our American friends know as the Intolerable Acts. The fifth of these was the British North America (Quebec) Act, and it is starting point for our challenge, as it was passed May 20, 1774.
This act was, in effect, the constitution of the province of Quebec. It showed the following borders:
This really was intolerable to those from the 13 colonies, for a few reasons.
1) New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia had all been granted some of Ohio in their charters.
2)Virginians had already started settling the area
3) There were already land development companies from the colonies
4) This represented a spread of Catholicism and the French
In reality, the borders were never truly enforced. Instead, a little war known as the American Revolutionary War was started. That's right. Just like Conquer Club sprung out of Quebec, so too did the War of Independence. You could almost say that it was invented at McGill.
You are the Americans, trying to fight for your freedom. Your adversaries are many and include: the British, the 6 Nations, the French, the Spanish and of course the Klingons. Will you ally with them or crush them? The choice is yours!
As an aside, I should note that the Quebec Act is actually part of the Canadian Constitution. It is, in practice, "repealed" as it was superseded by the Constitutional Act of 1791 which split Canada into Upper and Lower. However, it is still part of the constitution. I wonder if that means that Quebec and Ohio can separate together and form a new country.
