During the French and Indian War, France and Great Britain fought for control of North American territory. What impact did the end of the war have on the American colonies?
Hi there, The biggest effect of the French and Indian War was that it taught the 13 American colonies how to fight together. Before this war there was a mutual distrust between the thirteen. The next common foe would be Great Britain in the American Revolution. This war also left Great Britain in extreme financial trouble within their military which of course will be a huge advantage for the colonists in the Revolution. Great Britain tried to tax the colonists to make some money to be able to afford their military but this backfired when the colonists asked for representation in parliament-were denied- and started tossing tea off ships in Boston. Therefore, we can really thank the French and Indian War for paving the way to our freedom.
