The Treaty of Paris was signed after the Seven Years War, this not only granted more land to England and Spain, but It also helped established boundaries. As a result, France gave Canada to the British, Britain received the sugar hill islands and the British received land east of the Mississippi River. In return Spain gave Florida to Britain and they returned the philipinees and Cuba back to Spain. New world possessions play a pivotal role because after The Seven Years War balance was shifted and ties were severed between the British and Native Americans. Tensions were running high and they ultimately resulted in a rebellion.
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 marked a major turning point in American relations with Britain, with changes such as increased British control and anti-British beliefs, but also continuities such as a loyalty to Britain. The war eventually led to the elimination of the French property in America and the heavy taxation of colonists by the British. At the end of the war, the French ceded all of its land in North America east of the Mississippi River to Britain. This meant that Britain had practically completed their control over North America (the French kept two islands). This was a major change for the British-American relations as it allowed Britain to tighten its control over the colonies.
The French and Indian War also known as the Seven Years War was a conflict between the American Colonists and the French over control of the Ohio territories (the Ohio Valley). This war received its name because the war was Britain and its American colonies fighting against the French and Indians. Many Indian tribes became involved in the French and Indian War because the British were taking control over their hard worked for land. The French and Indians were upset that the Americans listened to British orders that took away their land that they had to live on. The Indians were excited to be on the French side since the French major gave them a ticket to attack British settlements.
The French and Indian war (also known as the seven year war) marked a huge turning point in American relations with Great Britain. Prior to the war the British and the French were in conflict and it reached America and was know as the seven year war which was from 1754 to 1763. The British had neglected any involvement with the colonies affairs except maintaining their policies for mercantilism. After the war the British were in debt and the colonies relationship with the mother country was strained. The war ended the period of neglect and conflicts worsened greatly.
The French and Indian war (1754-63) resulted in political, economic and ideological relations between British and its American colonies. Even during the time of war, population was booming. The land was becoming too small for the people, which meant the Americans needed more land. France was not going to let the colonists into their land, meaning there was only one way to go: west. The people that occupied such land were the people that were there since the beginning when the first colonists arrived.
In the war of 1812 America took on Great Britain due to British attempts to regulate American trade and the impressment of American sailors. Because of the impressment, in 1807 Jefferson did pass the embargo act that prohibited the ship to travel to foreign ports, but later it was changed to the Non-Intercourse act and all trade with France and Britain was prohibited so that other routes were created to alleviate the economic distress. Some men, called the War Hawks welcomed the war with Britain because they thought the impressment was an insult to Americans national honor and they wanted to put an end to it. Some war Hawks also expansionist that wanted to expand into Florida and threaten Canada. The war Hawks got defense expenditures approved and the army quadrupled in size and they were ready to fight a war.
The war was known as The Seven Years ' War to the British but to the Americans it was called The French and Indian War, it was the bloodiest American war in the 18th century taking more lives than the American Revolution. Spreading across and involving three continents which included much of Europe, the Caribbean and India. The war was sparked by a clash between the English and French over colonial territory and wealth. “The land- variously claimed by Virginians, Pennsylvanians and the French-was actually inhabited by more than a dozen Indian tribes.” (pg 130)
The French and Indian War, or the Seven Years War, began in 1754, as a result of conflict over territory and trade in North America. As both countries conquered the new land, letting their civilians settle there as colonists with the sole purpose of providing money for their homeland, they encountered the Ohio Valley; land that was assured to contribute to each of their imperialist motives. During the war where French troops allied with the native Americans against Britain, the laws given to the British colonies were left unmonitored, and the colonists evaded the strict taxation and rules against trading with other countries. However, when the war ended in 1763, resulting in a British victory, Britain was left a multitude of problems. This included the great national debt of approximately 122 million British pounds.
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.
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 and Indian War was important to the American Revolution because the debt from the war was the reason that Parliament started taxing the colonists. Also, the French and Indian War made Britain very weak, making the colonists’ actions work a whole lot better. Since France was not happy with the outcome of their war with Britain this was a main reasons for France’s interest in helping the now Americans throughout the Revolutionary War, which was very important to the colonies’ victory. The reason why Britain started to tax the colonists was because of the debt resulting from the French and Indian War. The first tax was the the tax on sugar, which was put on the colonists to help pay off the war debt.
The American Revolution The French and Indian War impacted the American Revolution in many ways. Britain incurred a large debt from the cost of the war and the taxes that they imposed on the colonists created feelings of anger and rebellion that led to the revolution. As a result of the French and Indian war, the British were not at full strength which allowed the actions of the colonists to be more effective. Because of the outcome of the war, France was willing to help the colonists. Without the much needed help from the French the colonist may have never won the war.
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 and Indian War was a big war fought in the northeast between French colonies and British colonies with Indians allies from both side during 1754 and 1763. As a result of this war, England won a lot of territory in North America and Canada. This war was considered part of the Seven Years War that was
