The French and Indian War

The War's ImpactAfter the war, the french suffered plenty. The British took most of their land in Canada. The British celabrated but the british soon realized they needed thousands of soldiers to protect their new land. They set taxes to the colonist so they could pay the soldiers. This led to the Tea act which led to the Boston Tea Party. The colonist did this to show Britain how mad they are with these taxes. They dumped tons of crates with tea into Boston harbor.

IntroThe French and Indian War was a big part of the American Revolution. Many events occured during the war like The Battle of the Wilderness which i'll explain later. The war affected mostly the french, since they lost. The french had to give up most of their land in North America. The war lasted from 1756 to 1763 as you can see from the title. I hope you enjoy this presentation!

The French and Indian War (1756-1763)

George WashingtonGeorge Washington was a young leader during the war. When he was 22 he led 400 soldiers to attack the french in 1554 before the war. He was allies with the Native Americans too. After attacking the french, the french wanted revenge. So the french attacked George and his troops during the night.

The Battle of LouisburgThe battle happened in 1758. Prime minister William Pitt had over 14000 soldiers attack. Pitt had his soldiers set up cannons that fired all night and day. This lasted for over a month when the french finally surrendered. The British won the battle successfully. Now the British can follow the river to the heart of Canada where most of the french forts were.

Battle of the WildernessThe battle happened on July 9, 1755. British General Edward Braddock was wounded badly and died. The british had lost the battle. The french learned from the Native Americans that hiding in the trees would be harder for the british to shoot you. The battle was also called the Battle of the Monongahela.

James AbercombyJames Abercomby used to be a british general but went back to a commander after failing to capture Fort Carillon. He also attacked Fort Ticonderoga. He led an army of 15000 british troops. His last name was also spelled "Abercombie".

Without the war If the war never happened then most of America would still be ruled by the french. The colonist would not have been angry from the taxes or acts and the Boston Tea party would have never happened. The french would control us if the british haven't won the war. America would never have it's independence.
