French and Indian War


Students will learn the importance of the 150-year contest between Great Britain and France for the domination of North America. The hands-on documents — historical maps, battle plans, contemporary newspaper accounts, officers’ notes — add up to a comprehensive narrative of the war. Students will want to consider how this war, ending with Treaty of Paris boundaries in 1763, shaped the territory for the United States, and determined its language, English, not French. Furthermore, students may consider how this war set the stage for the Revolutionary War as the British taxed the colonies to pay their war debt. Historian: James A. Crutchfield.
