The Seven Years' War, also known as the French and Indian War in the colonies, lasted from 1756 to 1763, forming a chapter in the imperial struggle between Britain and France. Both were doing all they could to gain control of the Ohio Valley and add to their respective empire.

In the early 1750s, France’s expansion into the Ohio River valley repeatedly brought with it conflict in the British colonies, especially Virginia. In 1754, the French built Fort Duquesne where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers joined to form the Ohio River (in today’s Pittsburgh), making it a strategically important stronghold that the British repeatedly attacked.

We discuss how George Washington and his party started the war, how he faired during his first military experience, and how he regained some momentum during a slaughter at Braddock's defeat and provide an overall summation of the war, the people involved, and the aftermath it left.
