How It Affected The
Land Movements of the Treaty
What was the Legislation?
The Purpose of the Treaty of Paris 1763 was to end the 7 years war.
The French were given certain privileges on British land (Fishing and Drying Shacks).
At a nominal amount the French still traded furs but the British won over a vast majority of the land.
Before the legislation the French occupied a majority of NA. From the St. Lawrence flowing into Acadia and Midwest/ Central US.
The British controlled The Hudson Bay and East Coast regions.
While Spain dominated Florida, Central and Southern America along with the Caribbean.
The treaty of Paris
1763 was a signing of peace to bring the
Seven Years War
(otherwise known as the French and Indian war to an end). France gave all of Canada to Britain. Spain received all things west of Louisiana. While France maintained two small islands in the mouth of the St. Lawrence along with fishing privileges.
was the document that was signed exchanging land and benefits to each country
The obvious short term goal of the treaty of Paris was to
end the seven years war
. Without war and feuds over territory, people could feel free to
down in their country's land. For issues, the French were obviously not pleased with loosing their immense amount of land so that more than likely created some tension back in Europe.
