Best Answer

Geography played a role due to the fact that the war itself stemmed from the trading posts which connected business of the French. Ohio Forks would just be a segment of the entire French Trading Posts. On the other hand, Britain wanted to build a trading posts in Ohio due to the fact the Forks was a major river to transport as it linked many places together. Basically, the geography led for good commerce and the two countries fought for the land which would benefit them econimically and politically - as the british needed to find more land for their overpopulated colonies.
