The French and Indian War 1754–1763 is the American name for the North American theater of the Seven Years' War. The war was fought primarily between the colonies of British America and New France, with both sides supported by military units from their parent countries of Great Britain and France. In 1756, the war escalated from a regional affair into a world-wide conflict.
The name refers to the two main enemies of the British colonists: the royal French forces and the various Native American forces allied with them.
