March 30

Event:
1775
The New England Restraining Act is approved by Parliament and King George III. These acts include;
* Effective July 1, 1775, New England trade to be limited to Britain and the British West Indies; trade with other nations is prohibited.
* Effective July 20, 1775, New England ships are barred from the North Atlantic fisheries — a measure that pleased British Canadians, but threatened great harm to the New England economy. In April 1775, the colonies of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and South Carolina will be included under the Restraining Act’s provisions.

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (b. 1746 – April 16, 1828) Spanish painter and printmaker.
