The Scratch of a Pen: 1763 and the Transformation of North America by Dartmouth historian Colin G. Calloway is one of the titles in the Oxford University Press series, Pivotal Moments in American History. Taking the title from the words of historian Francis Parkman, Calloway convincingly recounts how the fate of America and Indigenous Peoples changed with the writing of the documents, the Treaty of Paris and the Proclamation of 1763. It was this document that culminated a period of war known as the Seven Years' War (also termed French and Indian War) and set the stage for the American Revolution. The focus of the book is the way this single event forever changed the lives of Indigenous Peoples, British, French, Spanish, and enslaved African inhabitants.
