Prior to the publication of this encyclopedia, researching this war was a cumbersome chore of assembling and interpreting a motley group of sources. This task could involve costly travels to colonial records repositories, or time-consuming requests for British military records and translations from French-Canadian archives. In this ...

When hostilities flared between the British and French inhabitants of North America in the 1750s, the Virginia Colony and the Ohio Trading Company took center stage in the events that would later be remembered as the French and Indian War.
