Road to Revolution Begins The French and Indian WarFrench and Indian War
Conflict Begins Between England and it’s colonies By 1750 the colonies were growing rapidly due to: Cheap land Religious tolerance Economic opportunity BUT most importantly, England had left the colonies alone to solve their own problems Salutary Neglect With this growth, colonists hoped to move across the Appalachian Mountains and into the Ohio River Valley
France and England Claim the Ohio River Valley Both France and England claimed this area France wanted to control trade with the Indians Britain wanted to extend the colonies to gain more land
War Begins and Spreads From 1754-1763 war raged throughout the colonies Benjamin Franklin tried uniting the colonies with the Albany Plan of Union Purpose: to unify the colonies in order to better govern themselves and defeat the French Rejected: Colonial legislatures did not want to give up control
The British Take Quebec French surrender was a turning point in the war Within a year, Canada belonged to England British troops scale Quebec’s “unclimbable” cliffs and win the Battle of Quebec
The Treaty of Paris, 1763 Terms of the treaty: Britain gains all land from the Atlantic to the Mississippi River France gives Louisiana (area west of the Mississippi) to Spain for their help
Pontiac’s Rebellion Pontiac, an Ottawa Indian, wanted to stop the loss of Native land and culture The fighting between the colonists and the Ottawa became known as Pontiac’s Rebellion British decided that the western land would be expensive to defend so they passed the Proclamation of 1763 Outlawed settlement west of the Appalachian Mts., including the Ohio River Valley…that they had just won!
Proclamation of 1763 This angered colonists who had just fought a war for that land Moving west was the only option for same farmers to get land The British government was angry also Colonists refused to pay extra taxes to defend the land against the Ottawa They started to ignore the colonists’ arguments Hostility helped fuel the Revolution…
