The British and colonial forces attacked two forts near Nova Scotia. The forces also removed French settlers called Acadians from the land. However the British reign of victory shortly ended when they were defeated by General Edward near Fort Duquesne. Braddock died but Washington led a retreat that saved half the army.
The British cut off entry ways for the French ships. Many Indians left the French after this happened and wanted to join the British because they had better trading supplies. The British went on to capture Fort Duquesne and the fortress of Louisbourg which was guarded the St. Lawrence River.
