French and Indian War (jan 3, 1754 – jan 4, 1763)

Description:

- French and native allies vs. British and native allies
- Conflict over expansion into Ohio River Valley
- Failures at Fort Duquesne (1754 & 1755)
- First success in Acadia
- 1757: Prime Minister Pitt starts putting tons of money into the war
- Fort Duq. is captured (George Washington
rises as military hero)
- Nova Scotia, Ohio Valley, Upstate NY,
Quebec all taken by British

OUTCOMES
- England wins (but also loses) -- the war was a huge money pit, now they're super in debt, so they levy HEAVY TAXES
- Native Americans are the biggest losers -- lost the ability to play Euro. rivalries for their safety
- Colonists believe they're second-class citizens (treated horribly by British soldiers, forced into fighting a war they didn't support)

TREATY OF PARIS (1763)
- England gets Canada, Spanish Florida, Sugar Islands in Caribbean
