The French and Indian War took place in many locations, which included places in Europe, India and North America. The war began in 1754 and officially ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763.
The English and the French battled for domination of the colonies in India, the Caribbean and in North America. The English eventually won most of the colonial outpost, but they did so at a very steep price that almost caused the English government to collapse. In a bid to recover money that was spent in the war, the English imposed very high taxes on the colonies, which caused sweeping discontent in the Americas that precipitated the Revolutionary War.
