Backstory and Context
The French and Indian war took place in America. It involved conflicts between the French and English living within the American colonies. The tension originated from the conflicts brewing overseas between the mother countries of the American colonies, and eventually reached American soil. The French and Indian war is called the French and Indian war due to the Native Americans aiding both parties in the conflicts. The Native Americans bore the brunt of this conflict.
Fort Bon Secours was established by Nicolas Perrot. It was only occupied for four to five years before being abandoned. A new fort was created with the same name by the same individual, but was also only occupied for 4 to 5 years. The location of the fort now serves as a reenactment sight of French life during the French and Indian War.
