Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the events which led to the confrontation between English and the French and the Cherokee combined. It also takes into account the outcome of the realization of the Creeks of the need to find a way to unite so they could speak with one voice and act accordingly. Two main events shaped the course of the colonies and the Franco-British war for the control of North America. Firstly, the English blundered into a costly war with the Cherokees in late 1759 and secondly the secret agreement between the Bourbon kings of France and Spain brought Spain into the North American war in early 1762 which led the course of the imperial triumph.

Keywords: Cherokee war; Franco-British war; Cherokees; military alliances; Bourbon kings; North American colonies secret agreement
