A major conflict was taking place between the region of English and French in order to gain control of Ohio River Valley since the early periods of 1750s.

During the year of 1754, George Washington who was in charge of the Indian sided army ended up bowing down against the French forces and due to the French gained undoubted authority over Ohio.
As a result of rising tensions the government administrators who were living in London called for a conference that took place in the region of Albany. In the conference it was proposed that a centralized form of colonial government was required to be developed that would control the colonies but the plan was voted against. Later the same plan worked as a model for the development of the kind of governance almost 20 years later.
The conflicts further elevated with the government sitting in London taking over forts developed by France in the region of Nova Scotia. The government forced the residents of the region who were recognized as Acadians to relocate to different areas of the colonies. During 1755 another attack by the British that was led by Edward Braddock was foiled by the French and the leading cause of this defeat was the discriminatory opinion that the leader held against the Indian soldiers.
After this defeat the French launched a full scale attack on the English people and by the period of 1756 a world war started between the regions of England as well as France. As a result of the war the prime minister’s office of the government of Britain was taken over by William Pitt who developed the plan of fighting and winning the war in the region of North America and for this purpose he deployed heavy reinforcements in this region.
