The Influence of the Seven Years' War
One of the most wide-spread influential colonial wars was the Seven Years War which touched every colony and set the stage for the American Revolution. Known as the French and Indian War in the colonies where it spilled over, it created many of the colonial leaders.

The Success of the English Colonies
The English colonies succeeded because they found what would bring them success in each of the colonial areas. The Chesapeake colonists found that tobacco would give them the edge. Through this product, they were able to supply Europe with their smoking supplies.

Importance of Native and Colonial Relations
The Indians were the ones who called the New World home. To the Europeans that arrived on the new shores, the land was completely unknown to them. They did not know what crops would grow, how the weather would influence them, or what was behind the next hill.

Native Response to European Settlement
The Indians gave a variety of responses to the English colonization. It ranged from tolerance and allies to all out war. The manner of colonization and the impact felt by the Indians determined most of the responses that were received.

Why the Congo for King Leopold
Why was King Leopold so interested in the Congo area specifically? Or, was this just what he could get? What was it about the Congo that had the King of Belgium chomping at the bit to get a piece of Africa?

The Purpose of European Colonization of America
Each of the European countries had their reasons and agendas for getting involved in the New World. It ranged from money to power to a place to discard the unwanted. Their reasoning fluctuated as situations rose up and new leaders stepped into play.

British Neglect Led to American Revolution
The colonists wanted to be heard and have a say in how the mother country was suddenly directed them. Taxes were not the issue. It was how the taxes were handled. To the colonists, the Stamp Act was a tax for the entire purpose of raising money.

The Acts that Started the American Revolution
This was a shock to the colonists who had had freedom for such a long time. Britain wanted the colonies to pay with higher taxes. The colonists did not exactly protest the fact that taxes might be needed. They were protesting the method and the unreasonableness of the taxes.

A New Look at the British Colonies in America
It was after the Seven Years War that Britain began to look at the colonies differently. The British government began to look into how they could get the colonies into a “more efficient trading system with British colonies in the Caribbean and India.”

American Revolution Found in Seven Years' War
The colonies were a way to get money and peace. Yet, when the Seven Years' War occurred, the colonies became much more.
