There was no United States in 1763. There were British colonies on the North American mainland that stretched from Georgia in the south to Ontario and Newfoundland in the north. In 1763 the French were expelled from North America in the French and Indian War, known in Europe as the Seven Years War. Britain took over Quebec at that time.
