FRENCH and INDIAN WAR
Transcript of FRENCH and INDIAN WAR
Defeats for Britain
The War Expands
Britain Gets Control
Britain sent more troops and supplies to the colonies. Then, the war turned in its favor. British captured Fort Duquesne and built a star shaped fort there. They captured other French forts too. In 1756, the French and British started fighting battles in Europe too. Spain joined France in the fight. Since the British had a stronger navy, they defeated the Spanish in 1762. To make up for Spain's losses, France gave Spain most of Louisiana. The French and Indian war ended in 1763. The Treaty of Paris gave Britain most of Canada, all french lands east of the Mississippi River, and Spanish Florida. France lost all of their land in North America.

Causes of The War
Paying For The War
The war started because the British and Americans pushed Indians and French off their land because they wanted more land. The French and Indians formed an alliance to fight the British and the Americans. The war began and men went to serve.
FRENCH and INDIAN WAR
When they were fighting the Indians and French, General Braddock was killed. Washington wrote a letter to his family. It said, "I had four bullets through my coat and two horses shot under me, and yet escaped unhurt."
The Sugar Act, Stamp Act, and Tea Act payed the budget of the war. The Sugar Act stated that all sugar and molasses brought in to the colonies from the West Indies would be taxed. The Stamp Act stated that items like newspapers, legal document, and playing cards would be taxed. The Tea Act stated that all tea from Britain was taxed.Britain payed 140,000£ to have tax officers collect taxes in America, but the tax officers only collected 295£. Colonists would not want to buy british goods and riots would break out and people would boycott and protest. This led to fights with British soldiers.
