The Seven Year’s War and the Treaty of Paris

The Seven Year’s War was a war between Britain with it’s allies and French with it’s allies. In the end of the War, Britain won and France gave away most of it’s colonies in the Treaty of Paris. Among them was New France, which it gave to Britain. This lessened the need of British military might, made American’s feel superior, and created a debt for Britain, which made it look towards the colonies for money.
