The French and Indian War was a conflict between France and Great Britain.
It was a war to decide which nation would control the Ohio Valley. Benjamin Franklin proposed the Albany Plan of Union, which called for British Colonies to form an alliance. The colonies, however, didn't find it necessary.
The Treaty of Paris ended the war in 1763. The treaty gave Britain the Ohio Valley and Quebec.
France was forced to give up land to the British.
Britain imposed the Proclamation of 1763 on the colonists, which prohibited settlers to cross the Appalachian Mountains.
The war cost Britain a lot of money, so they raised the taxes. The colonists became angry.
