The conflict between the British and the French grew worse and worse every day until it became a war.
The French enjoyed the early success in the war. They captured British forts and the Natives helped attack British by the frontier.
William Pitt, who became the prime minister of Great Britain, decided to send more people to help fight against the French. He also agreed decided that, for now, Great Britain would pay the cost of fighting in the war.
After many, many years of fighting, the war finally came to end with the victory of the British. The Treaty of Paris was the one thing that ended the whole war itself. This gave Great Britain Canada and Florida and the French land claims east of the Mississippi River.
