General James Wolfe attacked the stronghold of Quebec in 1759. At night, they were able to scale and climb a cliff and occupy it. Montcalm suffered defeat and died while marching out.
In 1760, the British troops captured Montreal and made the French governor to surrender the rest of Canada. The "rest of Canada" consisted of the Greats Lakes and the forts surrounding it as well. The British had successfully met their goal in the major North America.
The fighting continued to persist in other parts of the world and the British won victories in India, the Phillippines, West African and the West Indies.
The treaty of Paris in 1763 ended the war with triumph for the British. The British ended up keeping Canada, the Great Lakes, the Ohio Valley, and Florida. They were able to run the French out of North America and the Mississippi river became the boundary between the British and Spanish claims in the Northern America.
We did it!
The war showed the tension between the British and colonists. With all the blood and money they invested to conquer the area of North America, the British wanted greater control over their colonists. They were also in a lot of debt and stuck with the expensive task of guarding the territories taken from the French.
In the 1760s the British started to impose new taxes and regulations on the colonial trade which the colonists did not like. This began when the colonists started to think for themselves and didn't want to be associated with the British. The colonies tried making attempts to become one was feared by the British.
We don't like what the British are doing.
