About Us

The eighteenth century was a tumultuous time that caused great upheavals in societies, cultures and governments around the world. The century began with a conflict that would span more than a decade to determine who would rule Spain in the War of Spanish Succession. The most powerful countries in the world fought each other across multiple continents for supremacy during the Seven Years War. Philosophers gained prominence and their thinking helped to topple monarchies across Europe. The American and French revolutions forever changed the way governments would interact with their people. The Industrial Revolution was beginning in several countries toward the latter part of the century.
