What two political events had the greatest impact on American colonial development?
Wars are the wages of political discontent. Two major political
events shaped the American colonies. One was the French &
Indian War in 1754 to 1763. In this war, the British American
colonies and the British army defeated France. This took France out
of power or claims in Canada and in the area of the Northern
hemisphere from the Mississippi River to as far as the British
colonies already existed.The second major political event was the
American Revolutionary War. War, again is the offspring of serious
political differences. In this case, this war gave birth to a new
nation, eventually called the United States.
