The Seven Years War, or sometimes referred to as the French and Indian war, took place in the year 1754 and finally came to a conclusion in 1763, just prior to the American Revolution. The French and Indian war is often a war that’s importance is overlooked throughout the history of America. The French and Indian war set the stage for the George Washington to become the most important American figure in history. The events and battles of the Seven Years War would lead the colonist to helping the British defeat the French and their counterparts, the Native Americans. What took place during the Seven Years War would affect the colonist forever.
The American Revolution was an inevitable conflict. The French and Indian War had major effects on the British and American colonists. This war doubled England’s already existent debt. America’s little financial and military help outraged many British officals during the war, which largely benefited the Americas.

By the year 1415 and the Battle of Agincourt, the English and French had been at war or in some manner of conflict for many years. Over the course of history these two peoples would war one another more than potentially any other people. The Battle of Agincourt however was unique amongst the long list of Franco-English conflicts; for it was in that year that King Henry V of England would not only set in motion the collapse of the French monarchy and his own accession to their thrown, but would also become memorialized throughout history for his decisive victory that day. The Hundred Years War (1337-1453) for which the Battle of Agincourt is included, was a conflict fought primarily over claims to the French throne. After the ascension of Henry V to the throne of England in 1413, he reignited the argument of claims to the French throne.1 Henry V demanded the French pay vast sums of money as well as grant him numerous territories.

The division of... ... middle of paper ... ...lliance with Germany who also went to war with Serbia. I believe that this was the spark that triggered war and caused it to be declared but not a main long term cause like the alliance system. In conclusion, the causes of World War One included many factors both long term and short term. Some factors go deeper and contributed to the tension and rivalry developing in the nineteenth century among the Great Powers stage. Such as things involving politics, cultures, economics and what I believe to be the most important, the alliance system; lots of other factors tie in with the complex web of alliances.
