Like the Great Awakening, the struggle between England and France for empires in the New World also helped prepare the colonists for independence. The fourth war fought between 1754-1763 was known as the French and Indian war.
The Governor of Virginia sent young, brave George Washington to order the French army to leave Virginia in the Ohio River Valley.
The French and Indian War was called the Seven Years' War (Fought 1756-1763) This War helped determine America's Independence from Britian.
