How did Joliet Marquette and La Salle affect the conflict between France and England in the 1700s?

Well, all 3 explorers (Joliet, Marquette and La Salle) did not have any "direct" hands-on influence on the ensuing British-Franco conflicts. However, some of their discoveries and following colonizations of the territories in the Americas eventually led to what is known as the French and Indian Wars. Many French colonies practically bordered with other British colonies, that led to many conflicts, each with its colonies and Indian allies on its side on a bid for the western territories.

Following France's defeat in the Seven Years' War, the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1763 and all French colonies were to be divided between the British and the Spanish. It wasn't until the Napoleonic era where France were able to get back some of the territories they lost, though only for a brief period of time.

Take it to a museum and have it authenticated first. Then if you still want to sell it, they can probably help you find a buyer for it. In the meantime though, you need to handle it as little as possible, wearing white cotton gloves when you do touch or hold it. And do NOT keep it in a plastic bag, or any kind of material that is not archival safe.

Name given to the music of the 1700's?

You are probably thinking of the Baroque period which ended in 1750 with the death of Johann Sebastian Bach. The reason the period ended there is because Bach was an impossible act to follow. He had just about said it all for Baroque music and the so-called Classical period was next. There is a LOT more to know on this subject but it can be engrossing reading.
