Johann Baptist Vanhal was active as a symphonist during the 1760s and 1770s, placing him among a group of composers, Haydn included, who worked out the parameters of the Viennese classical symphony.
But during the 1760s and 1770s he wrote a huge number of symphonies (an estimate by Vanhal himself placed the count around 100), of which more than 70 have been authenticated.
The Symphony in G minor was composed sometime during the 1760s; it was advertised in a 1771 catalog and eventually published in Paris in 1773-74.

Leaders of the 1760s revivals like John Cleaveland, Samuel Buell and Isaac Backus learned many of their messages, sermons and techniques from men like Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield, who Kidd said were responsible for the mass conversions to evangelical faiths, such as Baptist and Methodist, during the First Great Awakening.
The reason the 1760s are overlooked by historians, Kidd said, is because the advertising and advanced public relations for which George Whitefield is famous were not used during this period.
Many ministers of the 1760s saw the end of the Seven Years' War in 1763 and the defeat of the French as the end to the Anti-Christ.

Unrest in the empire took place at the junction of politics, culture, and ideas as Anglo-American nationalism, the transition to constitutional positivism, and the desire to reform colonial administration in the 1760s rendered the empire unworkable.
By 1763, Blackstone's Britain was on the march, master of a greatly expanded empire in North America, and many thinkers in London began to contemplate how the government ought to bring that empire into the legal and constitutional framework of the Kingdom and derive revenue from it.
In the 1760s the term "British Empire" first began to refer to the British polities on both sides of the Atlantic.

 Classicism and Sentimentalism
In the last lesson you read about the decline of the literary culture of old Rus' and about the beginnings of a modern Russian literature based on the European model.
The preliminary tasks of normalizing the literary language and developing a system of versification appropriate to the Russian tongue had been completed by about the 1760s, at least to the point of providing a serviceable foundation for the further development of Russian literature.
Even without complete agreement, however, the elements of a modern literature on the European model were sufficiently in place by the 1760s that literature ceased being the work of a few isolated individuals and began to show evidence of trends, schools, tendencies, and other phenomena associated with a mature literary culture.

The standard format for the 1760s treaties is found in the March 10, 1760, treaty made by the British with the La Have Mi'kmaq:
In what may be considered poetic justice, the Supreme Court of Canada on September 17, 1999, saw more than colonial officials had anticipated in the 1760s treaties and handed down a 5-2 decision that the Mi'kmaq had a right to fish without a licence to earn a living.
Justice Ian Binnie stated in the decision: "In my view, the 1760 treaty does affirm the right of the Mi'kmaq people to continue to provide for their own sustenance by taking the products of their hunting, fishing and other gathering activities, and trading for what in 1760 was termed necessaries."
