Transcript of Seven Years War

The Seven Years War By: Katie, Julie and Causes of the War Outcome Would Canada Be Different if Countries involved: Europe, North America, Africa, The Philippines and India are the countries that we will be focusing on during this project. Bibliography http://library.thinkquest.org/06aug/00922/war.html http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/related/frin.htm http://www.studymode.com/essays/Cause-And-Effect-Of-The-Seven-487949.html In 1747 Pennsylvanian and Virginia made the Ohio Trading Company, resulting in Britain placing more trading posts around to try and gain control. The Quebec people starting posting trades to try and contain the British, but it didn't work to well. The cause of the seven years war was an uprising in the fur trade in Great Britain. They saw the need for more territory because they were basically stuck on the Atlantic Seaboard and they needed more territory because of overpopulation and under occupation. They chose the Ohio River because there would be more room for their people, and there was even a good trading post to take over. http://faculty.marianopolis.edu/c.belanger/quebechistory/encyclopedia/JamesWolfe-boyhood.html http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=general+wolfe&um=1&hl=en&safe=active&sa=N&biw=1024&bih=587&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=Y_k1-x3K6VqjkM:&imgrefurl=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Wolfe&docid=WvZGwttNKrTszM&imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/21/James_Wolfe.jpeg/220px-James_Wolfe.jpeg&w=220&h=289&ei=-x6lUPD6Kc7y2gXlu4GoCA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=275&vpy=124&dur=811&hovh=231&hovw=176&tx=118&ty=122&sig=106404364272006262936&page=1&tbnh=125&tbnw=93&start=0&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:0,i:73 Bibliography Continued http://www.flickr.com/photos/lu_/2218172907/ http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=general+montcalm&um=1&hl=en&safe=active&biw=1024&bih=587&tbm=isch&tbnid=axxwJORym5Zl3M:&imgrefurl=http://www.cmhg.gc.ca/cmh/image-190-eng.asp%3Fpage_id%3D233&docid=QCVoy7De-KFhkM&imgurl=http://www.cmhg.gc.ca/cmh/book_images/high/v2_c1_s08_ss00_01.jpg&w=370&h=585&ei=RyClUODJC_Gu2gWt_4CQAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=89&vpy=100&dur=406&hovh=282&hovw=178&tx=99&ty=152&sig=106404364272006262936&page=1&tbnh=127&tbnw=80&start=0&ndsp=23&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:67 Danya Julie was here! :3 we Lost? Canada would be different in many different ways. We would be obviously be ruled by the French meaning we would all speak French. Our towns wouldn't really be different but it would totally change our geography or layout of Canada. We would probably live in the same conditions but who knows this could have caused other wars to happen. Some people living here would possibly have not even been born though because of different living environments and different people meeting each other. Other wars might not have started either so that would be an upside if that happened, but we think there we're just fine the way we are now. http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=141035 http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/the-seven-years-war-begins In the end, everywhere that France had claimed during the war was turned over to the British after their victory. The reason the British won was because the French were outnumbered and they came to their senses and realized that they couldn't win. In return, the British offered either the Caribbean islands or North America to the French. The French chose the Caribbean islands because it was rich with nature and had many supplies such as sugar and different spices for food. The French also decided that it would be easier to guard from invaders. http://totallyhistory.com/french-and-indian-war/ http://www.google.ca/imgres?q=seven+years+war&um=1&hl=en&safe=active&sa=N&biw=1024&bih=587&tbm=isch&tbnid=-T-8Wn0wIMEZlM:&imgrefurl=http://www.canadiangeographic.ca/atlas/glossary.aspx%3Falpha%3Ds%26id%3D282%26lang%3DEn&docid=7mZtk0ZwsmN25M&imgurl=http://www.canadiangeographic.ca/atlas/Images/Glossary/Seven_Years_War.jpeg&w=350&h=263&ei=M2eqUNu6G_KLyAGbtICwCQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=667&vpy=140&dur=960&hovh=195&hovw=259&tx=130&ty=132&sig=106404364272006262936&page=1&tbnh=120&tbnw=157&start=0&ndsp=16&ved=1t:429,r:4,s:0,i:82 (Pictures) General Wolfe General Montcalm The Seven Years War began with the King Williams war, led by William III, Stadtholder of the Netherlands, King of England, Scotland and Ireland to stop Louis XIV from completing his plan to attack. The second was Queen Anne’s war, which was a revival of the plan. Louis XIV’s grandson was placed on the Spanish throne after his victory.
The third was the King Georges war, the War of Austrian Succession, which was a long and very large war, involving many countries. The final war was The French and Indian War, also known as the seven years war. That was a very fast war, because there were English settlers flowing through the Appalachians, so the French needed to act quickly. The war was caused by New France and New England wanting power over the fur trade. Important Events General Wolfe (born 1727, January 2nd) was a quartermaster-general in the 1757 expedition against Rochefort. James Wolfe had first entered a war at the age of 13. He entered his father’s troop to see what war was like. He had gained local rank as Brigadier in America. He seemed to be a valuable soldier as he was a British expedition commander in 1759. In comparison to Montcalm’s army, Wolfe’s army was almost half the size, but it was far more powerful. In 1759, General James Wolfe died from two fatal wounds in the war. Louis-Joseph de Montcalm was born on
February 28th, 1712. When he was twelve
years old he entered the army, and
became a colonel at the age of
twenty-five. In 1745 he went to Canada for
the first time with 3000 soldiers, and went
back many times after that. A few years after coming to Canada for the first time he returned, and the British army learned of their return. They decided to intercept and attack them. On September 13th, 1759 the British army attacked the French army while they were in Quebec, led by General James Wolfe. When they attacked, there was about 5000 French soldiers and over 12000 Canadian soldiers. That battle was called The Battle of the Plains of Abraham, and lasted under an hour. General Wolfe was killed during that battle, and General Montcalm died the following day at the age of 42. (Websites) (Books) Canada Revisited 7 (Gr. 7) The Kids Book of
