Conflicting Claims In the mid-1700s Spain, France, and Britain were trying to keep control of their land in North America. Spain controlled most of southwest(Mexico) France controlled most of the north and middle (United States) Britain controlled the northeast (Canada) There was one part that Britain and France both claimed, it was called the Ohio Valley. In 1750 French sent soldiers to drive out the British. Britain thought this was an act of war.
The French and Indian War Begins In 1754 the governor of Virginia sent soldiers to fight against the French. George Washington led the Virginians. The Virginians knew they were outnumbered and built Fort Necessity. By the mid-1700s both France and Britain made alliance with the American Indians. In 1754 seven colonies sent delegates to Albany, New York to discuss the war. Benjamin Franklin was on that proposed that all the colonies work together to defeat France. None of the colonies wanted to work together.
The British Road to Victory In 1755 the colonies knew they needed more help. So Parliament sent more British soldiers to help fight against the French and its allies. George Washington was an adviser. In April 1755 General Edward Braddock and 1,800 soldiers marched to Fort Duquesne. British soldiers fight in open fields while French soldiers fought from behind trees and rocks. Britain did do well and General Broddock was killed. William Pitt sent more troops and supplies. In 1758 the war started to take a turn and French forts were captured. Spain joined France in the war but was defeated quickly. The war ended in 1763 with the Treaty of Paris. France lost nearly all its land in North America.
More Troubles In 1763 Chief Pontiac united the tribes and overtook some of the British forts. Britain’s King George III sent out a proclamation stating that all land west of the Appalachian Mountains belonged to the Indians. Many of the colonist didn’t listen and the fighting continued. 1764 Parliament passed the Sugar Act to raise money for Britain. This tax was on sugar and molasses brought in to the colonies. Soon there would be even more taxes.
Summary : In this section we have learned about conflicting claims to North American land that led to the French and Indian War. After the war, Britain issued the Proclamation of 1763, but most colonist ignored it and kept moving west.
