The french and Indian war alter the political and ideological relations between Great Britain and the american colonies in many different ways. The war enable Britain to be more involved with colonial political and economic affairs. After the war Britain also ended their policy of salutary neglect. After a while their plan to make money of the colonies soon lead to the revolutionary war because it increased tension and outrage among the american colonies.
In 1756 the French and Indian War began. At this time European nations were exploring and taking over the new world. Spain controlled South America while Britain and France dominated North America. Britain and France were fighting over land and trade. Britain wanted to expand the colonies so the colonies would produce more raw materials and buy more finished goods from Britain. After the war Britain wanted to be more involved in the colonies. They felt more of a British presence was needed but the colonist thought the opposite. Colonist did not want British soldiers, tax collectors and law enforces controlling their towns, they did not want British laws telling them what to do. The French and Indian War changed the relations between Britain
Overall Canada's Autonomy was improved socially, economically and politically as Canada become more and more independent and equal to the British Empire. Canada grew Politically as they made decisions for itself and did not rely on Britain to approve of the decisions. Canada grew socially as they created their own broadcasting channel where Canadian artists, singers, and entertainers could be heard. Finally economically where Canada became heavily involved in trade with the United States and broke trade with Britain meaning more resources manufactured and send without tax. The late 20s’ and 30s’ were not only a building place for Canada as a whole but a start for independence freedom and equality for Canada and its citizens.
Racism was no longer in vogue.” After becoming part of these organizations, racism was not exposed anymore and Canadians started to exhibit more equality and respect for each other. Finally, after realizing the mistakes made and taking actions, Canadians started to participate more in their country but also worldwide. They commenced to take part in their own democracy and began to change their relationships with other people. Prior to WWII, Canada became weaker as a nation but when they started to change their views on minority groups and Canadians from different cultures, Canada became stronger as a nation.
When looking back into history one typically overlooks the French and Indian war due to lack of public knowledge of the war and what the war accomplished. One of the major effects the war was the widespread development of anger directed toward Great Britain due to the increased taxation of the colonies. Unsurprisingly the war failed to lower the tensions between Great Britain and France. The French and Indian War represented a major turning point in the socio economic relationship between the colonies and Great Britain due to the financial and social tensions created by the war but failed to change the relationship between Great Britain and France.
The French and Indian War, otherwise known as The Seven Years’ War, was fought between the French and British colonies, along with their Native American allies. The British believed that the French were settling to close to their colonies. They wanted to shove them out of their territory. The British colonies gained Canadian territory from the French at the peace conference.
After years of being controlled by the French, the thirteen American colonies thought that the Seven Years War would be their salvation. While the British did defeat the French and gain the territories in the colonies, it was not the answer the colonists were looking for. The British gained complete control over the colonies. The colonies were tired of being restrained and saw a new destiny for themselves: freedom. The results of the Seven Years War were united colonies and a drive for independence.
The French-Indian War of 1754-1763 resulted in political, ideological, and economic alterations within Britain and its American colonies. The French and Indian War, also referred to as The Seven Years War, began with British and French conflicts across the Ohio River Valley, as both nations wanted to claim the land for themselves. The first blood of the French-Indian War began with multiple British failures, including Washington’s dreadful defeat at Fort Necessity and General Braddock’s failed attempt at conquering Fort Duquesne, in which he died along with two-thirds of his army (Document C). The British would, however, gain momentum in 1759 with multiple victories, including their most significant triumph, Quebec.
The French were looking to expand their land at a place called the Ohio River Valley, so they would have more land for their people. The French threatened to take the land the British had already claimed. Numerous battles broke out between them, which lead to a war. William Pitt, the new British leader, managed to get more colonies to fight for the British. Britain's power grew significantly in numbers of soldiers, thus making the British a rising empire.
The war was a turning point of French forces in North America, which confirmed British controlled the half eastern part of North America. The French and Indian war was the favorable to Britain, which balance the power of occupied lands in North America.
By 1775 the relationship attitude of the American colonist towards the British led to the American Revolution. Leading up to this event we can trace back to 1763 when British leaders began to try take control of the colonist. The British had set up a policy prohibiting people to settling in the west.Throughout the years the American colonists have changed their attitudes towards the British politically, economically, and socially by the 1775. Politically the British and the colonies were loyal and support to each other between 1700-1763. Economically through 1770 the colonist were not happy that the British were starting to be controlling towards their freedom and financially. Socially from 1770-1775 the colonist attitude towards the British
The events in American history have also affected Canada from a political perspective, which lead to the Democracy that is present today. Another way the U.S. has affected Canada is from a military perspective because Americans are quick to jump to war and Canada has had to help control them which lead to them being peacekeepers. The United States helped mold the Canadian identity by being both a threat and support to the nation; this will continue into the 21st century but Canada will keep it’s unique identity. A country 's culture can be seen as interchangeable with identity; in Canada there is evidence of American culture everywhere.
To add on, due to this famous battle that the Americans won, the French became convinced to join the war as allies of the Americans. As the war progressed on, the Continental Army became short in their supply of weapons and artillery, but as the French joined the war, they “provided supplies, arms and ammunition, uniforms, and, most importantly, troops and naval support to the beleaguered Continental Army”(History State 1). As the French provided aid and support to the Continental Army, there was a greater chance that the Americans could defeat the British. Also, the increase in their supplies made the military officials more bold and fearless in their attacks which actually brought them more success in the war. On the other hand, the French did not only help the Continental Army by providing them supplies, but instead, the French Army even protected the Americans in attacks from the British.
The French and Indian War altered the relations of the American Colonies and Britain through political, economic, and geographical issues. At the start of the French and Indian War the French owned a big majority of land but the during the war the French lost their land to the English. The Treaty of Paris in 1763 gave the English, the French land of North America (Doc A).
The French and Indian War occurred mainly on American soil in the 18th century. In the war, British American and New France fought, with heavy involvement from Native American allies, over regions in the New World, such as the Ohio River Valley. Britain ultimately won the war after capturing the city of Quebec. As a result of the war, the Treaty of Paris was signed, leading to France losing all most its North American possessions east of the Mississippi. France was also required to hand over French Louisiana to Spain.
