The French and Indian War, an extension of the Seven Years War, took more lives than the American Revolution and involved people on three continents. The war began brewing when news of French inhabiting lands that had widely been understood as English territory reached the colonies. Native Americans stood divided. Some tribes associated themselves with the French and some with the English. Some tribs felt hostile to both sides. There were several historic battles, including the Battle of Quebec and the Massacre at Fort William Henry. The war eventually ended French colonization in North America. England gained massive amounts of land due to the Treaty of Paris (February 10th 1763) and it's prominancy on the continent became apparent. The relationship between England and Native Americans was terribly damaged and divided. The Pontiac Rebellion lasted until the end of 1764. It would only be a decade until The American Revolution takes place, a revolution shaped by conflicts between England and it's colonies during the French and Indian War.
