What is the French and Indian War?

The French and Indian War was fought by France and Britain from 1754-1763. They fought over colonies and trade. The Seven Year War actually lasted for nine years.

How it started

It all started when the Govenor of Virginia sent George Washington into the Ohio River Valley to get the French out. When he was unsuccessful, he was sent back to try again. Since that did not work, George Washington built Fort Necessity and was defeated by the British. After he lost, he went back to Virginia in disgrace.
