Why is the French and Indian War known as a war that caused the American Revolution?
Following the French and Indian War (7 Years War in Europe) Great Britain's economy was in trouble. The cost of the war, both in Europe and America, added to the economic troubles facing Great Britain at that time. Increasing taxes in Great Britain was out of the question because taxes were already very high. The British were among the most heavily taxed citizens at the time. The Parliament and the British Prime Ministers felt that the American colonists should at least pay their share of the war. The British had defeated the French and the western lands and Canada were now open to expansion and settlement, without the fear of French attack. Thus, the Parliament of Great Britain began a series of taxation measures which the American colonists found objectionable. The argument by the colonists was that the Parliament could not levy internal taxes on the Americans because the colonists had no representation in Parliament. The Parliament countered that argument by claiming that the Parliament represented all British subjects, regardless of where they lived or if they elected members to Parliament. The economic crisis would lead to strained relations between the colonies and the Mother Country.

Both sides worked to attract the many Indian tribes to their side, although the white colonists in North America heavily favored the British. The war affected North America because the British defeated the French in the New World, thereby setting the stage for the British vs colonist American Revolution.
The outbreak of the French/Indian War in the 1750s was caused by the conflicting attempts of the French and the British to control the trade routes and trade sources of North America. Considerable wealth was at stake. The situation was complicated by the presence (and concerns) of Native Americans and independence-minded American colonists.
There were many leaders of the French Revolution. However, in America, the most widely known of these leaders is Robespierre. Robespierre was beheaded in the guillotine at the end of the French Revolution because he had caused the Reign of Terror. The Reign of Terror was a period of the revolution when thousands of innocent people were accused of being against the new government, and were beheaded in the guillotine.

The French did not get back Canada after the American Revolution because the Canadians wanted to remain under England. The Canadians had not experienced the intolerable acts that had caused the rebellion of the colonies that became the United States. The Canadians had much more freedom under England that they had enjoyed under France. So, they wanted to remain English.
