Transcript of The Seven Year War

The Seven Year's War
The 7 Year's War
Causes Of War
The Seven Year War
was connected with
the
British
and the
French
. The war was all over the world, some say it was even the most global war of all time.
1756-1763
Years before
The Seven Year War
,
Acadia
was captured by the
British
,
1694
. After three years the
British
and
French
created a treaty, but must give
Acadia
back. In
1713

Acadia
,
Martinique
, and
Guadeloupe
was captured. The
French
and
British
created another treaty and gave back
Martinique
and
Guadeloupe
, but kept
Acadia
, now known as
Nova Scotia
. In
1720
the
French
created
Louisbourg
, a fort to hold off the
British
trying to sail through
St.Lawrence River
to capture
Quebec
.

General James Wolfe
James Peter Wolfe
, born
January 2 1727
.
General Wolfe
years of service lasted
1740 - 1759
, until his death in battle.
General Wolfe
was carrying his fathers work, as a soldier. The Most important battles in
The Seven Year War
was in
Louisbourg
,
Rochefort
and most importantly the
The Plains of Abraham
,
James Wolfe
was in command of all of these battles.
The Plains of Abraham
was most crucial,

General James Wolfe
was determined to win this war due to his sickness. After countless times of failed planning,
James
came up with a plan to make a two
thin red lines
of his soldiers, this line was miles long! The soldiers also had
two bullets in each shot
. In this battle
both generals died
,
Montcalm
and
James Wolfe
.
James
was
shot three times
, the killer in the chest.

Have Two Bullets In Each Shot
And Use The Thin Red Line
.



General Montcalm
General Louis-Joseph de Montcalm
was born in
February 28, 1712
.
General Montcalm
was the commander against
General James Wolfe
during
The Seven Year War
. In
1757
, one of
Montcalm
wars in
North America
included the
Fort of William Henry
, which is deep in the
American Colonies
.
Montcalm
succeeds. In
1759
, another major war occurred in
North America
, it was located in
The Plains of Abraham
.
Montcalm
loses to a new strategy created by
James Wolfe
,
The Thin Red Line
, and when
James Wolfe
feints his attack on
Beauport Shore
.
Both Generals are killed
.
The Plains of Abraham
General Montcalm
used the
French
fire ships to block the advance of the
British Army
heading down the
St. Lawrence River
.
General James Peter Wolfe
needs to plan another strategy to invade
Quebec
and conquer it. Although this plan was supposed to be used to explode the
British
fleet when close. The ships were exploded too early, but did block the pathway to
Quebec
.
James
intended to head to the
Plains of Abraham
which was after the Battle of
Beauport Shore
.
Loss of James Wolfe
During the Battle
The Plains of Abraham
, and using his last plan, The
Thin Red line
, James is hit 3 times by guns and is forced to not see another day.
James's
plan was a success and won the battle, the
French
retreated that day.
September 13, 1759
.
French
Strategy
Both military strategic plans were very risky to take, it was like testing an experiment and seeing if it will explode or not. For
James Wolfe
using the
Thin Red Line
was a success although, for
Montcalm
the use of a gamble was an explosion, really it was,
Montcalm
plan to destroy the
British
fleet by exploding some of their own ships was a failure.
Montcalm
intended to explode the ships when the
British
came close enough and block the pathway but, it was to early. The ships exploded but, no
British
ships were destroyed. Though as long as it blocked the pathway it was fine.
Hudson Bay
In
1713
the
British
and
French
created a treaty. The
Treaty of Utrecht
. This treaty included the
British
to return
Mortinque
and
Guardeloupe
for
Acadia
and
Rupert's Land
.
Rupert's Land
was known for
Newfoundland
and
Hudson Bay
.
Hudson Bay
was lots of revenue of whoever controlled it. This was because of the fur trades it held, today
Hudson's Bay's
revenue is a total of
seven billion dollars
.
How The War Ended
The Seven Year
War ended well, a
French
fleet from
Guadeloupe
(which was between
North America
and
Europe
) was heading towards
North America
. Unknown that they were being hunted down by the
British
, they were defeated. In result the
British
had won
The Seven Year War
, the
French
surrendered all land. Both
British
and
French
created a peace treaty demanded from
Marquis De Vaudreuil
. Both sides returned some land it captured, although
New France
was not negotiated.
New France
stayed in control to the
British Colonies
.

Quebec Act, Royal Proclamation Of 1763
Later In History
After the war with the
French
, the
British
found a newly formed enemy, The
Thirteen Colonies
.
Virginia
,
Massachusetts
,
New Hampshire
,
Maryland
,
Connecticut
,
Rhode Island
,
Delaware
,
North Caroline
,
South Carolina
,
New Jersey
,
New York
,
Pennsylvania
,
Georgia
, were the
Thirteen Colonies
. Yet mostly
United States
,
France
,
Netherlands
,
Spain
, and
Mysore
. This was the
American Revolutionary War!
This war was caused by
Britain
from returning land to the
French
after the war, making new allies. The
Thirteen Colonies
had even smaller land than the
French
from the
Quebec Act
. This event had angered the
Thirteen Colonies
, angered their own people. The
Thirteen Colonies
were furious, they ventured
South/West
(which is now
America
, from where they were) and captured land. As
America
! This land towards the
South/West
belonged to the
Natives
, which angered the
Thirteen Colonies
also from not being able to even set foot on their land.
Newfoundland
Newfoundland
was already owned by the
British
in
1713
, due to the Peace
Treaty of Utrecht
, that also included
Acadia
and
Hudson Bay
. In
1762
the
French
engaged an attack on
Newfoundland
to increase their strength. The capture of
Newfoundland
was successful for a limited amount of time. The
British
then recaptured
Newfoundland
in the same year. In
1763

Peace Treaty of Paris
was made and ended the
Seven Year War
.
Ohio Valley
The
Ohio Valley
was wanted badly to create a fort at the
Ohio Valley River
to intercept whoever was coming down a fork river and for the
British
also to expand its over populated lands. Both
French
and
British
wanted it, the
British
tried to negotiate terms and discourage them to build a fort but was denied. The
British
then sent workers and soldiers to build their fort, all were killed. In
1754
someone finally built a fort, the
French
called it
Fort Duquesne
. The
British
did not have enough power to capture
Fort Duquesne
. Until after the
Fort of Louisbourg
was captured in
1758
,
Captain Pitt
finally captured
Fort Duquesne
and also
Fort Frontenac
, which was in
Kingston, Ontario
.
April 19, 1775 – September 3, 1783
Differences Between English And French
Acadia
In
1755-1760
the
Acadians
were told to swear yet another
Oath of Allegiance
. Many
Acadians
refused, claiming their forefathers have already taken an oath. The
British
then deported all of those who have refused. Almost
eleven thousand Acadians
were deported. This event caused
The Seven Year War
!
Most
Acadians
that were deported died from sickness and lack of food, these
Acadians
were heading towards
louisiana
.
The Seven Year
War started in
1756
and ended in
1763
.
Louisbourg
In
1713 France
creates a treaty with
British
, and will give
Acadia
and
Newfoundland
for
Martinique
, and
Guadeloupe
.
Louisbourg
was created in
1720
to fend off any intruders going down to
St.Lawrence River
to intrude
Quebec
. Especially when the treaty was made, both
Acadia
and
Rupert's Land
was very close. In order to win the
Seven Year War
,
James Wolfe
had to capture
Louisbourg
in
1758
in order to strike
Quebec
. After a huge siege against
Louisbourg
it was captured by
James Wolfe.
Plains Of Abraham
In
1758
,
Louisbourg
was captured,
James Wolfe
led a huge campaign to capture
Quebec
. In
1758

James
, also attacked the
Beauport Shore
,
James Wolfe
sent
4
thousand men.
Montcalm
foresaw this move and set a powerful defensive strategy towards
general

James Wolfe, James
suffered a loss of
450
men.
James
then decides to deceive his opponent, make a feint, try to fake.
James
made it look he would try to attack the same place twice. Then he sets his mission to go West of
Quebec
and attack. This war was on the
Plains of Abraham
. In
1759
,
James
diversion was a success and
Montcalm
sent his best men to
Beauport Shore
, and still needed to fight the invaders.
Montcalm
sent his other soldiers to attack instead.
James
intended to wait for the
French
to arrive. After running the
French
finally were in range of fire, the
French
were tired and out of formation, in groups! The
French
shot first and hardly hit any. But, when
James
sent the order to fire they sent a volley of bullets! After one line of men shot they reloaded and let the other line shoot, it was a bloodshed! Sadly
James Wolfe
died in battle taking a shot in the chest,
both
generals died that night.
