The French and Indian War had a negative effect on the relationship between Britain and its American colonies. The French and Indian War was known as the Seven Years War in America. The colonists were having conflicts with the Native Americans on the issue of territory.

He tried to convince John Hughs in Pennsylvania that it would be wise to stay loyal to the crown (Doc, G). Though the Stamp Act was a reestablishment of Britain’s political authority on the colonies, it also reestablished Britain’s economic control over the colonies. After the end of the French and Indian War, Britain wanted the colonies to repay Britain for its aid in defending the colonies against the Native Americans. They did so by
