Las Importance (Significance)
By 1741, France had claimed most of its land and so had Britain. With the British addicted onto the ideology of manifest destiny, they decided to conquer in a westward fashion. France also thirsty for colonization, went to look for more land in the Ohio River valley, clashing with the British in Virginia. The French succeeded against the British in 1754 to 1756 with the help of the Indians, but the tides turned in 1757. William Pitt the upcoming general in the British empire, paid the Prussians to help him in the bloody war. This nearly tripled the British troops and by 1758 the war was in the Britain's favor. The British closed in on the province of Quebec, then Montreal, until the 1763, when the war resolved into the proclamation of 1763, splitting the previous french colony into Louisiana following up the western side of the Mississippi river. The significance of the French Colonization affecting the Seven Years' War, created a lot of tensions between the British and the French. This cause the eventual completion of manifest destiny (Americans) The shrinking of the French powers influenced mostly the Canadian and the Louisianan territory rather than the rest of the French American territory. This resulted in the Cajun idea in the Mississippi Delta and the Canadian tradition resembling that of France. The French and British still had foreboding tension that would soon manifest into the industrialize era into the scramble for Africa and the industrialization in India and East Asia.
As a result of these tension many reforms and thoughts were exercised in France. The tension between the British as well as the monarchical, aristocratic oppression in the early 16th century caused a sturdy foundation for the French Revolution to take place. The significance of the French encroaching on the Canadian Plain and Mississippi River Valley gave an overwhelming paranoia sandwiched between the Spanish, west of the Rocky Mountains, and the British, east of the Appalachian. This balance was the perfect mixture to unfold the deadly injustice that the citizens of France encountered not only in the Americas, but in their own country.
The last effect of the French was the loss of the Louisiana purchase to help fund France into a stable country once more. The Louisiana Purchase, a land mass more than 827,000 square miles , was for sale to releve the internal tension in France.
Overall, France was not ready to be a part of the new world in that specific moment because they were not stable nor financially ready for the large amounts of spending. From the first days of King Francis I, France was not able to catch up to the race of colonization nor establish permanent influence in each of the areas conquered. The French citizens, also unsatisfied with the highly excessive royal spending did not like the idea of the new world ridding them of money and supplies. However, the French being very involved with the colonization movement, they were able to spark some French influence to Canada, Louisiana, Haiti, and French Guiana at least. Though significance of the French was not as profound in the US as they hoped, people today have much French influence due to the fashion market, world sports, and the cuisine.
