As such, the text is infused with all the anxiety and emotion of a nation at wa... View more info

Abercrombie's humiliating defeat at Ticonderoga in 1758 was the last straw for the beleaguered British Army. After three years of attempts to remove the French from their settlements and forts on English territory, the British resolved to replace their inept, politically appointed commanders with reputable generals. The new strategy proposed and adopted was to combine the British regulars, provincial forces and militias into three expeditions to attack the French on three fronts simultaneously, and to take all of Canada, ridding North America of all French interests. One by one the French fort... View more info

Packed full of action and drama: soldiers march, ships sail, guns roar; generals fall, villages burn and scalping knives drip with gore. These unaltered newspaper articles consist of letters, reports and perhaps a few exaggerations; still, they represent the type of information that was flowing from the printing presses to the general public. The battle for Quebec on the Plains of Abraham occurred on September 13, 1759, but news traveled slowly and the citizens in Boston waited in suspense until mid-October for confirmation of that British victory. The newspapers continued to feature eyewitnes... View more info

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 ... View more info

The years 1766 through 1775 were turbulent times for the city of Boston, Massachusetts, immortalized by a series of incidents that would set in motion one of the most significant events in the history of the Western world. The heightening tensions between the British Empire and her upstart American colonies would be played to an irreconcilable stalemate in Boston Harbor and in the streets, in the offices of government officials and merchants, in the homes and businesses of common citizens, in the public houses, and on the pages of the daily news.

By 1760, the capitulation of Canada by the French and Canadians all but ended the French & Indian War. Blockaded by the powerful British Navy, the people of New France might have been lacking in provisions, but certainly not in fighting spirit. Attempts to retake Montreal and Louisbourg stretched the resources of the British forces, who also were fending off the Creeks and the Cherokees on the western frontier. As if that weren't enough, the best troops and generals in British service were sent to the West Indies, participating in fierce battles for control of Martinique and Cuba. Although the...
