About this webinar

Colonial Wars are an interesting part of our history. Many of the soldiers in the French and Indian War would go on to serve in the Continental Line in the American Revolution. It was the first global war. We called it the French and Indian War, but the British and French called it the Seven Year’s War. Battles not only occurred on the American frontier but in places like India and the Philippines. George Washington was so embarrassed by his actions which precipitated the war that he began to learn how to be a better military officer. It prepared him for the fight two decades later. Learn how to properly research a participant in this war in colonial records.
