    The French and Indian War 1756-1763
    The French and Indian War was also know as the six year war which occured from 1756 to 1763. During this 6 year war European imperalist fight over territory and who would become the first president of America. Both the French and British imperalist wanted to expand their countries frontier regions. Also in the North America originally in France, the French colonist along with their Native American allies who were against Great Britain.

    But what Ultimately caused the outbreak of the French and Indian War was the series of events in Ohio Valley River, the French and the British Governors had claimed as their land. Both colonies military forces built forts within that area and tired to conquer each other's forts. Later on an expedition was led by George Washington which escalated to the war between Great Britain and France.
  • Significance of the French and Indian War 1756-1763

    This war had later ended with the Treaty of Paris I n 1763. This war was able to give Great Britain North America territorial increase. Also this war caused Britain to become in alot of debt paying for the wars expenses. I believe that this war was Significant because it was able to decrease or increase the colonies territory in the New world.

    Also since this war occurred it was a cause of the American Revolution so if this war was to not happen history during the 17th century would have played out differently. It also shows how many past events can lead up to problematic events in the future.
  • The Treaty of Paris in 1763

    The Treaty of Paris in 1763
    this peace treaty was created in 1763 by a negotiation between Benjamin Franklin, Jorn Adams and john Jay with Great Britain. Within this treaty the British had permitted American independence. And yeilded East territory from Mississippi River all the way up to the United States, this allowed for western expansion. then George Washington lead an American and French group with the help of General Conte de Rochambeau captured General Charles Cornwallis in Yorktown.
  • The Treaty of Paris in 1763 Continued

    This is when the peace negotiations started, because England heard of the defeat from Britain to end the American Revolutionary War. This Treaty of Paris was signed by Franklin, Adams and Jay at hotel d'York in Paris.
  • Treaty of Paris Significance 1763

    The Treaty of Paris was pretty important due to the fact that it was able to win the American Revolutionary War, imagine what changes would occur in that war had been longer or if this treaty had never existed. Also this treaty was even able to Grant the U.S territories with it weren't for this treaty would the U.S have Western territory.
  • Treat of Paris 1763 Significance Continued

    The Treaty of Paris had a great impact to Britain and the us because even Independence was able to be recognized. This treaty even destroyed the colonial Empire of Great Britain in North America. I believe that this treaty was highly influential during this time. Due to how it was able to make certain things happened so imagine if this treaty was not negotiated Britain the U.S, France and Spain would have been drastically different.
  • Pontiac's Rebellion of 1763

    Pontiac's Rebellion of 1763
    The Pontiac's war begin with a Confederacy of Native American warriors where the Ottawa Chief named Pontiac attacks the British Force. Pontiac Hadfield at stealing the fort later creating an army of Wyandottes, Ojibwas and Potawatemis. He would later use these people to fight another battle planned. then Chief Pontiac was able to expel Britain's from French land as well as take the closest.
  • Pontiac's Rebellion 1763 Continued

    He did this by creating an army for every Indian tribe from Lake Superior. Pontiac then created a war console on the banks of the Ecorse river. He was unable to gain access to the British fort by negotiating a peace treaty, this allowed him to forcibly take the Arsenal. But Pontiac's plan didn't go smoothly because Henry Galdwin a British major knew Pontiac's plans beginning a seige.
  • Pontiac's Rebellion Significance 1763

    Pontiac's rebellion was significant to history because it allowed others to become more courageous and to take action right away. Also this event also contributed to the American Revolution which shows how smaller events lead up to much bigger and serious ones. Pontiac's rebellion impact of the relationships with Native American leaders.
  • Pontiac's Rebellion significance 1763 continued

    I believe that this war was used to the British advantage and was used as an excuse. Pontiac's Confederacy war was uses an excuse to renew important treaties with the Native Americans who did not share the same goals as Pontiac. If this Rebellion did not occur how would certain colonies appear.
  • The Royal Proclamation Act of 1763

    The Royal Proclamation Act of 1763
    when the French and Indian War had ended the British had established his proclamation to resolve the problem on settlers in roching on Indian lands. After this War the British Empire wanted to enhance its control over autonomous colonies. This Proclamation then led to the decline in Westward Expansion which affected the 13 colonies.King George the third demanded that all lands west from the Appalachian must be divided so it is off-limits to the Colonial settlers,
  • The Royal Proclamation Act of 1763 continued

    George did this in response to Pontiac's revolt. This division affected how many agreements would be made with in the Native Americans they even forbide them to not make any interactions with the natives. Only licensed traders could deal was with the Indians. The creation of this Proclamation decreased the chances of Native Americans being attacked by White settlers or vice versa.
  • The Royal Proclamation Act of of 1763 significance

    I believe that this Proclamation made a great impact on the white settlers and Native Americans. There is always this tension between the two causing Outburst that can turn out very violent, so with this it allows for the attention to lower and less problematic occurrences. Also this Royal Proclamation had it became one of the cornerstones to the Native Americans law in the United States as well as Canada.
  • The Royal Proclamation Act of 1763 significance continued

    I think this Proclamation had impacted every one greatly at such a large rate that it might have stopped the future events from happening between the settlers and Indians. Maybe new Wars / rebellions would have been created if it weren't for this Proclamation.
  • The Stamp Act of 1765

    The Stamp Act of 1765
    The Stamp Act was an Act passed by the British Parliament in 1765. This new tax law was applied to every American colonists and they had to pay taxes on items that require text to be paid for. The money that was collected from the colonists was used to pay for the cost of Defending and protecting the American frontier near the Appalachian Mountains. During this time. Taxes in colonial trade was implied as a way to regulate commerce.
  • The Stamp Act of 1765 continued

    Also the Virginia House of Burgesses had voluntarily taken Patrick Henry Stamp Act resolves. The resolve stated that Americans and Englishmen had the same rights, which also states that Virginians do not have to pay taxes except those voted by the Virginia House of Burgesses. And the people who supported the right for Parliament to tax Virginians were considered an enemy of the colony. Later governor for a queer did not agree with the resolutions.
  • The Stamp Act of 1765 second continuation

    So the Stamp Act was created to raise money in the colonies without the approval of the colonial legislatures tubes, was able to pass without resistance.
  • The Stamp Act of 1765 significance

    The Stamp Act was significant in history because all American colonists were required to pay taxes and practically everything which was unfair to them. Also this Act leads to future boycotts and other Acts due to the colonies response to the taxes. This shows how people are more brave to speak out against certain things as a community.
  • The Stamp Act of 1765 significance continued

    Also in this Act we're able to see Society developing because many people want to vote on this especially like paying taxes, Society has developed and now they want to be able to have a say in things.
