The Fur Trade ~1656~
The Fur Trade was a fashionable items in central Europe When the fur trade first began, First Nations and Inuit people brought the furs to the trading posts. They would arrive by canoe. The furs would be unloaded and traded for goods such as muskets, axes, knives, blankets, whiskey and pots. It was not long before some of the men at the trading posts decided they would go inland and get the fur themselves. These were the people known as the Coureur de Bois..The Coureur de Bois learned the ways of the woods from the First Nations. They were taught how to canoe, hunt and snowshoe. Canoes were made out of birch bark the way the Natives taught them. They dressed in the same kinds of clothes and ate the same food as the First Nation peoples. A typical meal consisted of pemmican, deer meat and dried corn and peas.. The silver birch tree was the most important resource for life in the woods. It was used to build and repair canoes on the journey. Shelters were built with the branches and the bark. The bark was also good for drawing maps on and for writing messages. The bark could even be eaten if there was no other food!
The Thirteen Colonies ~1675-1750's~
The Revolutionary War ~1775-1783~
The Boston tea Party ~1773~
The Thirteen Colonies were established by Great Britain on the Atlantic coast of North America between 1607 and 1733. In 1776 they declared their independence and formed the United States of America. They extended from what is now Maine in the north to the Georgia in the south. The colonies were: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Each colony developed its own system of self government. Other British colonies in the British West Indies and Canada remained loyal to the crown through the war, although there was a degree of sympathy with the Patriot cause in several of them.
The Boston Tea Party took place on the night of Thursday, December 16, 1773. The British decided to add tax to tea to help pay for some of the stuff in war. The colonists didn't like it very much because they were already paid a lot and they don't want to pay even more. So, to show there anger and disagreement they protested. They disliked it so much that they threw out all the crates of tea delivered on a ship.
The Seven Years War took place between 1756 and 1763 with the main conflict being in the seven-year period 1756–1763. It involved mostly about the great power and affected Europe. The exact location is Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia. General James Wolfe (1727-1759) was the British armies officer. He fought in the Seven Year War. Sadly, he dies at the age of 32 on September 3, 1759 from a firearm (a type of pistol/rifle)
Jacques Cartier (1491-1557) is a French explorer who claimed what is now Canada new France. He was the first European to describe the map of St Lawrence. Jacques explored many places like the St Lawrance River, Stadacona, Hochelaga and many more. Samuel de Chaplain (1574-1635) was known as "The Father of France." He found Quebec and Montreal on exactly July 3ed, 1608 and set out with the Hurons at the age of 18. He is a french explorer and navigator who mapped much of northeastern North America and started a settlement in Quebec. Champlain also discovered the lake named for him (Lake Champlain, on the border of northern New York state and Vermont, named in 1609) and was important in establishing and administering the French colonies in the New World. The Fur Trade was a fashionable items in central Europe
The Hierarchy of New France is basicly multiple levels. Only men were workers. Womans were usually house wife and the people who take care of the whole family. Also, there were sertain people named indentured servant, criminals, slaves. These people are very poor. They would work all day and get a very little amount of money. New France was located in Quebec and it was near the St.Lawrance river. The goverrners in the church were offcialy stuctures that direct life in New France.
The Revolutionary War (1775-83), Patriot forces under Colonel Benedict Arnold (1741-1801) and General Richard Montgomery (1738-75) tried to capture the British-occupied city of Quebec. The attack failed, and the fight cost Montgomery his life. The Battle of Quebec was the first major defeat of the Revolutionary War for the Americans. General Richard Montgomery and his forces proceeded up Lake Champlain and successfully captured Montreal on November 13 before heading to Quebec City. Colonel Benedict Arnold led his men through the wilderness of present-day Maine, approaching the city directly. In mid-November, Arnold arrived on the Plains of Abraham outside of Quebec City. He requested the city’s surrender. He was running low in resources to fight, Arnold was forced to wait for Montgomery to join him with his troops and supplies because if he didn't then he would lose his troops from hunger. Also, the more troops they have the better.

The Declaration of Independence ~1776~
The Declaration of Independence, on July 4, 1776, the 13 American colonies severed their political connections to Great Britain. The Declaration summarized the colonists’ motivations for seeking their independence. By declaring themselves an independent nation, the American colonists were able to conclude an official alliance with the government of France and obtain French assistance in the war against Great Britain.
The War of 1812
The War of 1812 (which lasted from 1812 to 1814) was a military conflict between the United States and Great Britain. As a colony of Great Britain, Canada was swept up in the War of 1812 and was invaded a number of times by the Americans. The war was fought in Upper Canada, Lower Canada, on the Great Lakes and the Atlantic, and in the United States. The peace treaty of Ghent, which ended the war. However, in Canada, the war contributed to a growing sense of national identity, including the idea that civilian soldiers were largely responsible for repelling the American invaders. The First Nations allies of the British and Canadian cause suffered much because of the war; not only had they lost many warriors (including the great Tecumseh), they also lost any hope of beating the American, and their contributions were quickly forgotten by their British and Canadian allies.
