French and Indian War
The French and Indian War was the final war between England and France. There had been several wars between the two countries leading up to this fight. These wars were the following: King William’s War, 1689-1697; The War of Spanish Succession, 1702-1713; as well as The War of Austrian Succession, 1740-1748. The French and Indian War was fought during the years of 1754-1763, with the bulk of the fighting taking place between 1756 and 1763 (which is why it is also known as the Seven Years War). It was primarily fought in North America, and resulted in France losing its colonial power. The costs associated with this war caused discontent among the American colonists, and is one of the factors that led to the American Revolution.
