The French and Indian War began in 1754 and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The war provided Great Britain enormous territorial gains in North America, but disputes over subsequent frontier policy and paying the war's expenses led to colonial discontent, and ultimately to the American Revolution.

The Declaration of Independence, 1776. By issuing the Declaration of Independence, adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, the 13 American colonies severed their political connections to Great Britain. The Declaration summarized the colonists' motivations for seeking independence

The Louisiana Purchase (1803) was a land deal between the United States and France, in which the U.S. acquired approximately 827,000 square miles of land west of the Mississippi River for $15 million!

The Americans accepted the deal and the Indianans were not too happy about it because that means the would have to leave and they didn't want to do that.

They where very upset and where mad!!!

This is the land the Americans bought for only an extra $5 million! This was important on how America started because it opened up rivers for the Americans to use and also they almost doubled their own country!!!

In the war of 1812 we went back to war with England. It was one of the closest battles in history. Nobody really won they just decided to stop fighting.
