The French & Indian War ended in victory for the English, and the French were forced to cede all of their forts, settlements and land-holdings east of the Mississippi River, save for New Orleans. This change of hands was followed by a flood of new English settlers. The Indian tribes inhabiting these lands found themselves displaced by the new settlers. Pontiac, sachem of the Ottawa, resolved to resist the incursion and in doing so united all the Indian nations who had been in the French interest against the English. Known as Pontiac’s Conspiracy, this bloody Indian uprising overran and captured 9 frontier forts in 15 days and nearly usurped English control in the Ohio Valley.
