Welcome to the French and Indian War Project

North America after 1748

The French and Indian War was a colonial extension of the Seven Years War that ravaged Europe from 1754 to 1763, was the bloodiest American war in the 18th century. It took more lives than the American Revolution, involved people on three continents, including the Caribbean. The war was the product of a clash between the French and English over colonial territory and wealth. Within these global forces, the war can also be seen as a product of the localized rivalry between British and French colonists, both sides involving the indigenous people of North America.

The Seven Years War was the last of a series of conflicts that are known collectively as the French and Indian Wars. Where are the earlier conflicts recognized on WikiTree?

Just an FYI-this project page has two lists of members, and has some other duplicated sections, needs to be cleaned up.
