What was France's North American empire?
France's North American empire was built largely upon fur trading of the French settlers in the area. Few strategic outposts dotted the frontier in America. The French also relied heavily upon the relationships with Native Americans.
Their empire's area went down to Florida and east of Mississippi and all of Louisiana,
as well as Ontario, Acadia, Maine, & Quebec. The French empire in North America was much larger than Britain's before the French and Indian War.
