A map illustrating the course and major events of the French and Indian War (1754 - 1763), a crucial North American conflict within the broader Seven Years' War between Great Britain and France. It started in 1754, pitching France, French colonists, and their Native allies (referred to at the time as Indians) against Great Britain, its colonists, and the Iroquois Confederacy.

The war ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1763, in which France ceded Canada to Great Britain and abandoned all claims to lands east of the Mississippi River (excluding New Orleans). While granting Great Britain enormous territorial gains in North America, the war's financial burden and disputes over frontier policies fueled colonial discontent and paved the way for the American Revolution.
