This seven year long battle was caused due to the prolonged altercation between the French, British,the Native Americans, and the Colonists. French and Native American relations had grown over a period of time (1756). For instance, Samuel de Champlain had created a "fateful friendship" with the Huron Tribe. Both groups had a vengeful vendetta between the colonist and Britain, nevertheless, the Europeans came out victorious. Previous of this audacious Revolutionary War, Britain and the colonist were untimely united and defeated the Native Americans and the French during this war. Unfortunately, this war caused Brittan to focus on their independent colonists ( due to Salutary neglect) and foreshadowed future conflicts between these once united Europeans.
