Question: How did the French and Indian War change British relations with the colonists?
The French and Indian War changed British relations with the colonists in a number of ways. The British victory in the war resulted in the acquisition of a great deal of new land in North America, which Britain sought to exploit through taxation of the colonists. As part of the Treaty of Paris, Britain also received a significant debt from the war, which they sought to recover through additional taxes on the colonists, leading to increased tensions between Britain and the American colonies. The war also caused the expansion of British military presence in the colonies and the implementation of the Proclamation of 1763, which restricted colonists’ land purchases to the east of the Appalachian Mountains. These policies created further divisions between Britain and the colonists, leading ultimately to the American Revolution.
