Direct: The Ohio River Valley & Fort Duquense

When young George Washington was sent with a batch of some militiamen, he was told to take over the Fort Duquesne and control the French in that area. This was the first incident and direct cause of the interaction of the British and the French during the French and Indian War.

Native Americans Take Sides
We, the Algonquians, will aid the French
We, the Iroquois, will help the british
We don't want to aid anyone (neutral)
Native Americans played a huge role in different countries. They helped raise the army size of whichever army. The Iroquois helped the British and the Algonquins aided the french. Some of the other Indian Tribes didn't help any country and decided to be on their own.
Peace of Paris
Willian Pit, the prime minister of Britain, took charge and sent some troops to Canada for conquering. His troops took over Louisbourg in 1758, and Montreal in 1760. After the Peace of Paris was signed in 1763, the British now had control of French Canada and Florida. France then moved back to Spain territories like Louisiana.
