From the post:

We’re racing through our series covering how to get started with various Black Powder 2 periods. This week, we’re disappearing into the forests of North America with the French-Indian War.

The French-Indian War began in 1754 as tensions between British and French colonists in North America escalated. Fighting raged back and forth across the frontier between British America and New France, with both sides utilizing their native allies to supplement their militia and regular forces.

The war, which started as a colonial dispute, became another theatre of the Seven Years War, which once again pitted Britain and her German allies against Bourbon France and Spain. This global struggle for dominance would span five continents and claim thousands of lives.
