The French and Indian War took place between 1754 and 1763 in North America. It was mainly fought between the colonies of British America and New France, with England and France providing military back-up to their respective colonies.

The war was mainly fought on the borders that separated New France from British America. The name "French and Indian War" is very misleading, as the American Indians actually fought on both sides!

What Was The French And Indian War Actually About?
Well, there’d been friction for quite a while before the war actually started, as both British and French colonies wanted supremacy in the New World.

In the early 1750s, both sides tried to colonize Ohio River Valley. Each colony believed that they were the rightful owner of the land, but the final straw was the British (headed by George Washington) massacring a French scouting party. Needless to say, the French colony didn’t take too kindly to that.

How Did The French And Indian War End?
It ended with the signing of a peace treaty – the Treaty of Paris – in 1763. As an agreement was reached, neither party really lost, but the French definitely came out of it worse than the British. Both sides suffered quite heavy financial losses, but that’s to be expected from a war that lasts nine years!
