The French and Indian War 1754-1763 A world war The English went into the headwaters of the Ohio River in Western Pennsylvania. Here is great land. This river flows into the Mississippi which goes to the Gulf. This is the most valuable piece of real estate in North America. France heads to the Ohio River first and start to build forts along the Headwaters. Fort Duquesne o At one point over 1000 soldiers at this fort o Not a heavily settled area in the back woods o The French way of establishing rights to this river Water transportation is the best way to travel…! Roads sucked and trains didn’t exist. Water was the fastest and cheapest mean for transportation. England starts to settle much later than France. The governor of Georgia sends a militia with Commander George Washington whom has no military experience up north to establish an English presence. Washington builds a fort at the head waters not far from Fort Duquesne and named it Fort Necessity. For strange reasons, Washington gets involved with a small skirmish with some French soldiers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
