the french and indian war
Transcript of the french and indian war
Britain wins the war leading to the Treaty of Paris
Britain sent more troops and supplies to the colonies and won the war. The war ended with the treaty of Paris which said, Britain now owned most of Canada, all lands east of the Mississippi river, and Florida. The French were not happy that the British got half the land and the Indians got half the land, and they just fought in a war and didn’t even get a lot of land. They only got a part of the land east of the Mississippi river because the British were already living there, and the French had lost most of the land they once had.
Even after Britain made the treaty the war was still fought because they did not have telephones back then so they have to send a letter which took months to get to America. When the war ended the British were not happy that their king was taxing their things but the king was broke and had to pay for the war. The people in America were refusing to pay taxes so the king taxed the sugar in the Bahamas. The king got the money and the colonist got the sugar.
Both Great Britain and France laid claim to the Ohio valley, a massive piece of land that stretched from the Ohio River to the Application Mountains to the Mississippi river. The French sent troops to drive out the British which made the British declare war. By the mid 1700's both Britain and France had formed alliances with many Native American tribes in the Ohio Valley. Once fighting for the Ohio Valley, both sides started to ask their allies for help.
The Stamp Act
To buy most kinds of paper a certain stamp had to be put on the package to show that tax had been paid. If the tax stamp was not on the package the solders could arrest the people who took the cards or package. The colonists were not happy with the king because they had no representation in parliament so no one could speak for them in court.
the French and Indian war
The war started with George Washington building Fort Necessity, because he built Fort Necessity the French and their Native American allies attacked which started the French and Indian war
The Townshed Acts
Parliament made tea, glass, paint, and paper also have taxes on them. The law also set up a group of new tax collectors to make sure people were paying all their taxes. Parliament did repeal the stamp act. the king thought the Townshed acts were fair.
