The French and Indian War was fought for land and power in North America. As the war excelled, the Native Americans took the side of the French rather than the British. This is because the French were not attempting to take over their land like the British were (Zinn chpt 5). Over the seven years that the war lasted, the British defeated the French and now had control of most of the land. Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States, accentuates about how the British could continue its ruling over the colonies, “With the French defeated, the British government could turn its attention to tightening control over the colonies” (Zinn 60).

Though both authors are writing similar topics, their arguments are much different. In the book A People 's Army: Massachusetts Soldiers and Society in the Seven Years ' War, written by Fred Anderson he studies the Seven Years War from a social history perspective. Instead of focusing on the military aspects of the Seven Years War, he would look for the history of the people within the war, such as, colonial Americans in the New England area. Anderson argues for New England exceptionalism through rising tension between Britain and the colonies, as well as, claiming Puritan Christianity as what shape Massachusetts volunteers to fight, and at times desert. He aims to show how the American colonies, although unified for this war, gradually
History is made everywhere, we just don 't take it into consideration as much. Today, i 'll be explaining the differences and similarities about the French and American Revolution. The French Revolution had three estates which were first estate (church clergy), second estate (nobility and the rest of the French people), and the third estate (urban lower class and peasant farmers). They went through a lot, mostly because of debt and unfairness.
