Americans often call it The French and Indian War and there was a concern about which nation would control the North American continent. The war spilled over into the North American colonies due to conflicts between French and England in Europe: The French and Indian War. The French and Indian War started in 1754 and lasted until 1763, and was fought between the British Empire and the French empire in North America.

Have you ever heard of the Second Revolutionary war also known as the War of 1812? The War of 1812 is called the Second Revolutionary War by some scholars. It’s called that because the vast British Empire fought the newly formed United States military in the New England Colonies. The attempts to shut down U.S. trade by the British Navy, America expanding West, and impressment on U.S. sailors by the Royal Navy were all factors that led up to the war. Impressment is removing seamen from U.S. merchant and war vessels and forcing them to serve the Royal Navy in the War of 1812.
