Figure 12.
The map was published in 1755 by a British-based group calling itself "the Society of Anti-Gallicans." The year following the map's publication would see France, Austria, Saxony, Sweden, and Russia aligned against Prussia, Hanover, and Great Britain in the last major conflict before the French Revolution to involve all the great powers of Europe. History would remember the conflict as the Seven Year's War (1756-63), or the French and Indian War. Part of the conflict moved to North America and was settled on the Plains of Abraham in present-day Québec City.
