There were many reasons for why there was tension between the French and the English. One main reason, was because they all wanted the land of the Ohio River Valley. Along with land, others sought that there was good fur trade there, along with native alliances. The last reason is, because some saw this place as home and that would happen to be the indians.
Jumonville's death was a very tragic event in time. Jumnville was a peace maker or known as a French Diplomat. His death occurred because Washington was tricked or motivated to attack the French by a chief known as Half-King. Half-King walked up to Jumonville who was already wounded lying on the ground, and Half-King took a dagger right to Jumonville's head. Washington was blamed for the cause of his death.
Washington decided it would be a good idea to build a fort right in the wide open meadows surrounded by woods. while Washington and his troops waited days and weeks for the English in the area to bring them supplies. Of course we all saw this coming when behind the trees hid the troops of the French and there Indian allies. It started to rain causing the fort to flood when the attack happened. There was no way out.
After the attack on fort Necessity, the french knew that Washington had no chance to escape so they made a surrender paper. In the surrender paper it explained how the french were offering the chance for Washington to surrender. Washington couldn't read it and his best translator was wounded there for he sent dutchmen who knew very little French. there for Washington didn't truly know what the document said so he signed a paper agreeing that he killed Jumonville.
George Washington was clearly very inexperienced. some big mistakes he mad was building a fort surrounded by woods. Another thing was letting Half-King take advantage of him. The last thing. was signing something that he truly didn't understand what it said.
King George The II sent troops to help clean up the mess that Washington created. The natives offered to help the British but General Braddock wasn't very nice and refused. There for natives then began to make alliances with the French. This all started because of fur trade, land,and ect. this war lasted 7 long years.
