The French and Indian War 2
This storyboard does not have a description.
Maybe we should have gone with the British.
In 1758 and 1759 the British cut off French shipping to America and many Indians decided to join the British.
The British captured Fort Duquesne and the French fortress of Louisbourg which was key in guarding the St. Lawrence River.
In 1759 General James Wolfe captured Quebec and General Montcalm died. Wolfe's men attacked the fort by scaling a cliff at night.
Fine, fine, you can have Canada!
In 1760, the British captured Montreal and the governor general surrendered Canada along with the forts around the Great Lakes. The British had succeeded in their goal!
Eventually in 1763 the Treaty of Paris was signed and the French had been driven from North America! This war had united the colonists because they had all worked towards a common goal.
The British needed more money after the war, so they put a higher tax on colonists. The colonists had started to feel separate from Britain and this was strengthened as they worked together. They wanted Britain to keep a loose rule. This would lead to conflict later. Benjamin Franklin tried but failed to unite colonists with the Albany Plan of Union.
