Seven Years War / French and Indian War Lesson Plans


Few events have had such a significant impact on the formation of the United States as the French and Indian War. One part of the larger Seven Years War, it was both an immense victory for Great Britain and a colossal loss. The British were able to add a significant amount of North American territory to their empire, but financed the campaign with borrowed money. The incredible debt created by war spending led to the infamous taxation crisis in the colonies, which became the primary catalyst for the American Revolution.

French and Indian War Background

The French and Indian War refers to fighting in North America between French and British forces from 1754-1763, as part of the larger conflict between France, England, Spain, and others known as the Seven Years War. By the middle of the 18th century, Europeans had explored and begun to colonize the North American continent. France, England, and Spain claimed the lands of North America, but not all territory was agreed upon.

The area between New France and the British Colonies saw the majority of the fighting during the French and Indian War. Colonists and soldiers disputed borders and both sides wanted the best land. The most highly contested land surrounded what is now the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, and the Ohio River Valley. France began constructing forts in the Ohio River Valley on the western edge of the British Colonies, and Britain responded by sending troops to enforce her land claims and force out the French.
