Great Britain’s colonies had to pay taxes for their future empire near the seas.
The seven year war started in 1756-1763. The French and Indian started the seven year war because in the early 1750 's when the French became bigger and more known to the Ohio River Valley it repeatedly brought the French and Indian into armed disagreements.
