The rumor of this defeat spread throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the West Indies; later being named, "The French and Indian War".
In 1763, the Treaty of Paris ended the war triumphantly for the British for they had most of the land once owned by the French.
Struggling to pay their debt of the war,the British wanted greater control over the colonies. This is when they imposed new regulations and taxes. The raising of their taxes soon led to colonial discontent, and ultimately to the American Revolution.
