Technology and Economy

Industrial revolution

1760 - 1761

Steam power – The efficiency of steam engines increased so that they used between one-fifth and one-tenth as much fuel. The adaption of stationary steam engines to rotary motion made them suitable for industrial uses. The high pressure engine had a high power to weight ratio, making it suitable for transportation. Steam power underwent a rapid expansion after 1800.
Iron making – The substitution of coke for charcoal greatly lowered the fuel cost of pig iron and wrought iron production.[22] Using coke also allowed larger blast furnaces,[23][24] resulting in economies of scale. The cast iron blowing cylinder was first used in 1760. It was later improved by making it double acting, which allowed higher furnace temperatures. The puddling process produced a structural grade iron at a lower cost than the finery forge.[25] The rolling mill was fifteen times faster than hammering wrought iron.[25] Hot blast (1829) greatly increased fuel efficiency in iron production in the following decades.

Bill of Rights (Royal Proclamation)

Approx. 1791 - Approx. 1792

The Bill of Rights played a very important part in the passing of the Constitution in the first place. When the Constitution was first proposed, many individuals and state conventions were concerned that it did not adequately protect the rights of the citizens.

English Revolution

1642 - 1651

In Marxism, the "English Revolution" is the period of the English Civil Wars and Commonwealth period (1640–1660), in which Parliament challenged King Charles I's authority, engaged in civil conflict against his forces, and executed him in 1649. This was followed by a ten-year period of bourgeois republican government, the "Commonwealth", before monarchy was restored in the shape of Charles' son, Charles II in 1660

American Revolution

1765 - 1783

The American Revolution was a political upheaval that took place between 1765 and 1783 during which the Thirteen American Colonies broke from the British Empire and formed an independent nation, the United States of America.

Napoleon

Approx. 1799 - Approx. 1804

Napoleon seized control and initially installed an enlightened despotism known as the Consulate. During this time, Napoleon instituted a number of important Enlightened reforms. He also implemented a state-wide compulsory education, known as the University of France. In 1801 he ended dechristianization.

Society and Culture

Relationship between Europeans and Abriginals

1600 - 1812

The nature of Newfoundland and Labrador's economy limited direct interaction between Aboriginal groups and Europeans for much of the 17th and 18th centuries. During this period, Newfoundland and Labrador served mainly as a seasonal fishing station for European crews engaged in the transatlantic migratory fishery. Most vessels arrived in spring and departed in August. Sustained contact between fishers and Aboriginal people was rare and, because European governments had almost no interest in establishing permanent settlements on the island.
