When you write an essay, it is important that
you have certain elements in it to make sure
that it is quality. You should always have an
introductory paragraph. In the introduction,
you are going to outline what it is you are
going to discuss in your essay. You should
include a thesis statement in that first
paragraph. A thesis statement is a position
statement on which you base the rest of your
essay. In your body paragraphs, you should
be attempting to prove your thesis. You
should make statements, and then back them
up with evidence. In your concluding
paragraph, you should restate your thesis in a
new and interesting way. We should always
write our essays in a way that makes them
interesting to the reader. No one wants to be
board out of their mind!

The French and Indian War (1754-1763) was a seven-year-
long war between Britain and France (France was allied
with the Indians). Although fighting began in 1754, the
war did not officially begin until 1756. They were fighting
for the control of much of North America. This war was a
part of a larger war that was going on in Europe.

At the beginning of the war, France controlled Canada and
the Louisiana Territory. Britain controlled most of the east
coast of North America. In one of the first battles of the
war, Lieutenant Colonel George Washington and his
Virginia troops (fighting for the British) were sent to
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to remove the French from their
new fort. Washington was defeated by the French, and the
French soon controlled the entire region.

In 1756, the British began to defeat the French, especially
in naval battles. In 1759, General James Wolfe's army
defeated the French at Quebec (although both Gen. Wolfe
and his French adversary Gen. Montcalm both died during
the battle).

When the French finally lost the war, the Treaty of Paris (signed on February 10, 1763) gave Britain control of Canada and the French areas east of the
MIssissippi River. Spain gave Florida to Britain, and received the former French areas west of the Mississippi River.
As a result of the war, the English colonists no longer needed the protection of the British against the French, and they became more independent from
Britain. This war also resulted in higher taxes paid to Britain. These influences eventually led to the American Revolution.

15. Name 3 things that were taxed by the British government.
_____________________________________________________________________________

The Stamp Act was passed by the British Parliament
on March 22, 1765. The new tax was imposed on all
American colonists and required them to pay a tax
on every piece of printed paper they used. Ship's
papers, legal documents, licenses, newspapers, other
publications, and even playing cards were taxed. The
money collected by the Stamp Act was to be used to
help pay the costs of defending and protecting the
American frontier near the Appalachian Mountains
(10,000 troops were to be stationed on the American
frontier for this purpose).

The actual cost of the Stamp Act was relatively
small. What made the law so offensive to the
colonists was not so much its immediate cost but the
standard it seemed to set. In the past, taxes and
duties on colonial trade had always been viewed as
measures to regulate commerce, not to raise money.
The Stamp Act, however, was viewed as a direct
attempt by England to raise money in the colonies
without the approval of the colonial legislatures.

If this new tax were allowed to pass without
resistance, the colonists reasoned, the door would be
open for far more troublesome taxation in the future.
