The French and Indian War started in 1754 The British were at first unsuccessful and disorganized in the Americas But they rallied and soon with the help of great military figures like William Pitt Amherst and Wolfe they won the war The Treaty of Paris laid out the land gains and losses for both sides In addition to boundary shifts the French and Indian War had many other effects The war had increased Britains debt to 133 million pounds by 1763 This led hatred towards to colonies whom were unable to help pay off this debt Grenville and other men of the British Empire demanded the colonies to help pay off this debt They imposed harsh acts such as the Sugar and Stamp act This outraged many British colonists especially Patrick Henry who protested the Stamp Act and many other unjust acts of the empire at one of the Virginias House of Burgesses meetings They felt that they were taxed unjustly and without representation The British were also outraged at the lack of cooperation and appreciation of the colonists after the support Britain gave the colonies in the war There was another repercussion of the war Men like George Washington who fought in the war with redcoats saw the weakness of the British army The redcoats were not as powerful as the colonists thought The colonists realized that the redcoats would not always be able to serve and protect the colonists Also the war made colonists work together militarily and they realized that when they were united they could become a force that could challenge the mighty British Empire The results of the British conflict with France were the debt of Britain which it tried to pay off by taxing the colonies and the realization that the colonists were strong enough to fight Britain Taxes and acts led colonists to doubt their loyalty to the empire and this led to the American Revolution
