The French and Indian war began in 1754 and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. Britain and France were already fighting in Europe in the early 1750s. The French and Indian war started when France tried to take control over the Ohio River area and Britain did not want to let them have it. Britain declared war against France. It is called the French and Indian war because the French people relied heavily on local Native American Indian tribes to help them as allies.The war provided Great Britain large territorial gains in North America. Great Britain's frontier policies and war expenses led to colonial America's discontent and ultimately to the American revolution.
