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.
