    The Quebec Act expanded the territory of Quebec as far south as the resource-rich Ohio Valley. This act, passed by the British Parliament in 1774, aimed to accommodate the French-speaking population of Quebec and maintain their loyalty to the British Crown. By extending Quebec's boundaries to include the Ohio Valley, the British hoped to prevent American colonists from settling in this region, which was a valuable source of fur, timber, and other resources. This expansion of Quebec's territory further fueled tensions between the American colonists and the British government, contributing to the outbreak of the American Revolution.
