Diplomatic History at the State Department
The Office of Historian at the Department of State has an excellent website with a section called milestones which covers diplomatic events from the colonial period to the present day. Each time period, (there are 18) includes an essay with an introduction that reviews the historical context of the event. All you do is select a period from the side bar to get to get to the event. If you click on the side bar for 1750-1775, you'll find a short essay on incidents leading to the French and Indian War, the Treaty of Paris, and the Quebec Act, to name just a few. My colleague, Jeff Feinstein, sent me the link and uses it for his AP US History class.
