    This event is signifigant for a couple of resons. One, it marked the death of Braddock. Two, Braddock and his men were surrounded and attacked by the French and Indian forces. The third and last reason this event is signifigant is because it marked the slaughter of far too many men, mostly British. Before this surrender and defeat the British were still in the middle of the fight of their lives and their lives relied on them fighting. They fought from the first through the fifteenth and gave it

    This sad event happened in upstate New York. This followed the surrender of the British to Montcalm and his men. Montcalm had promised all of the British safe passage back to England.

So the British went to the American colonists and asked them to fight by their side. At first the Americans were unsure about it and the British noticed. So they pushed a little harder. The British told the Americans witth them there would be peace quicker. Realizing the colonists were still debating, the British

    also told the colonists of free healthcare, shelter, and food. This made the colonists feel insulted. Like they are so desperate that they would beg the British for acceptance. So they said NO WAY! This event is signifigant because it marks a time in history when Americans were indpendant and fought for themselves. A time when they weren't in desperate need of help during the war. This event is important because it shows that we didn't feel so sad and desperate that we begged for assistance. No!
