The French and Indian War

The war that raged in North America from 1754 to 1763 was apart of a larger struggle between France and England, known as the Seven Years War

Most Native American Indians fought on the side of the French

Although few did fight on the side of the English

The war began when the English became alarmed at the Forts being built by the French in the Ohio River Valley and George Washingtons defeat at Fort Necessity

So the English sent General Edward Braddock commander in chief of the British forces to America to drive the French out of the Ohio Valley
