French and Indian War 1754-1763
This French and Indian War, also called the
Fourth French and
Indian War, was the North American extension of the
Seven Years' War.
In the upper Ohio River valley colonial rivalry between France and
England came to a head.
George Washington was sent to the
French quarter with the order for the French to withdraw. War ensued
and the opening fight of the war took place at Fort Necessity, 11
miles or 18 kilometers southeast of today's Uniontown, Pennsylvania.
It was the only time Washington
ever surrendered in battle.
Here is more about all the
French and Indian Wars.
