The French and Indian War was fought by the British and the French. This war caused many issues between the American colonies and Britian because of the things the British were doing to the Americans during the war.

The English did not have much money aand it did not help the British much. (DOC F) The British are trying to get more money to support their military and its increase in territory and populatoin. (DOC F) The British are the saying the amount of revenue they're getting is too little. (DOC F) Although, in my opinion, the British should not expect the Americans to pay anything because the war had nothing to do with Americans.
