respond a discussion question for history 1
I just want you to responded to the response question that already answered and give some thought and examples to this:
Why did France and Great Britain go to war with one another in the 1750s and 1760s? What role did the colonies play in the conflict and how did it create circumstances in the British colonies in North America that would escalate tensions between the colonists and Great Britain?
The war between the British and French was as a result of frontier strains in North America as both British as well as the French sort to expand their colonial spheres of influence within the boundaries. In North America, this war pitted French colonies as well as their Innate colonies against Great Britain, Anglo-American colonist as well as the Iroquois Confederacy which was in control of most upstate New York and other areas of Northern Pennsylvania. Boundary amid British and the French possessions was not wel-defined with one of the most disputed territory being Upper Ohio River Valley. In this particular region, French had constructed several forts for the purpose of strengthening their territorial claim hence forcing the British to attempt expelling the French from this territory in 1754 although the French outnumbered and defeated them. In 1958, the war turned in favor of British defeating French forces in India. British also invaded and subjugated Canada in 1759.
In this conflict, the colonies played various roles with the major one being defying the regulations that had been set by their masters so as to tighten control over the empire. For example, British leaders had set regulations to tighten control over their empire in terms of navigation and imperial trade. To counter this, American colonies were notorious in evading the set regulations and also participated in trade with the French hence the British found it right for the American colonists to pay their fair cost for their defiance.
