WIf dis French and Indian war i has never witnessed anything like dis. Outside my own home i saw the fightin wif my own eyes. The French looked like they might be winnin but i dunno. The war is stupid. The indians were there first so why do they French and British people think dey can just get whatva they want.
I saw dis person who was in red use that magical weapon to kill nother person! how horrible! Dey all need Jesus in there life. As a christian who follows Jesus, he has done taught me to be kind to others. All they want is stupid land. There is no reason to be killin each other. Those indians should done fight back and save der land! Can you tell im learning how to write and read?
I think it is absolutely wonderful that you are learning how to read and write! As a Quaker I can relate to your hatred to the war. However I was able to help a group of soldiers when they marched past my mill. I can easily understand how you have trouble with the concept but I would suggest having a bit more detail and description. Overall I thought your blog really is well written. It expresses how you feel about this terrible war. I hope the war doesn't effect you. -Thomas Smith
i think that you gave your blog a good amount of details to explain your person and it sounds like someone actually wrote it in the 1800.
i think that you gave your blog a good amount of details to explain your person and it sounds like someone actually wrote it in the 1800.when you said you killed someone with a magical weapon
Reading and writing is very hard but I think it is wonderful you are trying. I do agree that killing each other over land that's not even ours is stupid. The Indians were doing fine then we had to barge in. I have seen the "Magical weapons" they are guns and they are awful killing machine. -Petunia Stot
I liked how you made it sound like it was back then and did't have it so the language was like modern day
I liked how you made it sound like it was back then and did't have it so the language was like modern day. The only thing I think you should of done is that you would't of made all the words like the old days. I like how you said they used a magic weapon . But I think you should of said it was a gun from the french and British point of view
American, I don’t want either to win. I want all of them to die and to give me and my fellow Natives back the land which is rightfully ours. There is talk here at my colony about traveling up on our horses and ending the war, ourselves and taking our land back! The tension between France and Great Britain was very serious They fought over the Ohio Valley, which I was not apart of. The battle was in the North and since I live in the South, I don’t really care about the war that I am not apart of.
Also since I lived in North Carolina, which is in the South, the battle between the French and British did not affect my daily life. My colony is affected less than people in other colonies because the battle was in the North Carolina. Considering I am a Native I hope neither British and the French don’t get it.
I read the newspaper when the war was over, I jumped for joy! While I read the newspaper i saw a familiar name, like mine. I had realized that some of my family had been killed during the war. Almost my whole family died but, thankfully the british o french didn’t hurt my mother, father, any of my siblings, or my husband.
i think that the story was relistic because people always say that there families were killed. what i did not understand was you said that your whole family was killed and then said they did not kill your mom dad and your siblings.
The colonies, bad people come to move us out of our home land so they can make more money. We hate the red coats on what they did to our people killing the men in the war and leaving the bodies to rot. Now my whole family is died and I'm still alive why couldn't the red coats take my life and save my family.
Good job on pointing out that they are killing whole families, that shows us that they are just killing innocent people. I would try to work on making it longer and adding more description.
The outcome of The French and Indian War was significant because it now allowed the british to expand westward and control trade. The war was won by the British but not without a cost for them they lost many people because they were stupid and wouldn't adapt to our way of fighting. They marched in straight lines and wore their bright red coats which was like trying to find a leaf in a forest. We fought by hiding behind trees and taking aim at their bright red jackets. One of our major victories was slaying the british general Braddock.
Before I battled at fort necessity my best friend, Horkbajar, trained along my side since the beginning. While we were fighting in the battle, Horkbajar was right along my side hiding behind the tree next to mine. All of a sudden I heard a pop and was expecting a bullet hit me when I turned and saw that Horkbajar was falling to the ground and started to bleed. I was shocked that my best friend who had fought by my side this entire time was gone. I knew i was going to morne later but at that moment I had a battle to win. Even though I loved and respected Horkbajar I continued to fight and we won that battle.
I truly am sorry for your lost friend. He will be in our prayers. The war has had a great impact on you. I am very fortunate to be able to be in the crossroads of war and be unaffected. I do want to ask which side you are on. I seem to be very confused on the subject. Also remember to capitalize correctly. At least that's how we folk do it in Pennsylvania. I had not heard of Braddock's death. The kind man had visited my mill not a year ago. Bless his pour soul. I do not approve of your happiness of his death but I will respect your opinion. I do hope your life returns to normal some day but for now I wish you good luck. Be sure to check out my company blog! smithincmillingco.edublogs.org -Thomas smith
I think you guys wrote this really well. Its details really helped understand the story
Finally, the war is over and my father is home! I heard so much about the war and also read about it. In one of the newspapers I read said that on the way to the Ohio Country the French and their Indian allies ambushed the British army. It also said that the French dressed like the Indians to show that they respect the Indian culture. The French also fought behind cover instead of fighting in rows like the British. My father was one of the only soldiers to make it out of the woods in the retreat.
The war actually had some good things for us in the British controlled colonies. Our colonies have more land to expand on! The last war of the French and Indian War was at the heart of the French area in the “New” land in Quebec, which is now in Canada. All in all we have greatly advanced our own land into the coast all the way to the Mississippi and parts of Canada.
Today me, John Smith witnessed something terrible. I opened up the newspaper and saw about how we the British had won the Battle of Quebec. That was great, but as I kept reading I came upon something terrible. My cousin had died during that war. I was so sad my family got together and just cried all afternoon. I am scared that the next battle could be in New York!!!!!
This war is starting to affect me a little bit. It is getting a little harder to get new boats from my neighbor because he is currently making a lot for England. Four of my five workers left for the militia. Now I need more workers because I am starting to sell more fish with tons of soldiers being in our area. I am making tons of money and can afford to buy new nets now. If you know anyone who would like to work stop by. Fat Fisherman’s anytime.
I am deeply sorry to hear about your loss. I am also glad I'm not facing the shortages you are in the coastal areas. Since I run a lumber mill, I haven't had any problems. Living near Breezewood, Pennsylvania has been a great opportunity, although the fighting troops actually walked right past our mill on Pittsburgh Road! I donated supplies in an act of benevolence, since as a Quaker we don't accept violence. I hope your areas will get back to normal, because as for me, I am worried the liberal British will be plowing through my milling land with settlements, next.

John is my husbands name! That is so unbelievable!! His name is John Poppins!
I am with you and hoping you are looking for workers because I am a poor farmer that lives in New York. Some extra cash would help. But I had read the news today and read about Quebec and the British heading to New York! I hope they are wrong but I have faith in the French militia!
I really like it how you incorporated a slave into the mix of everything happening. I think that all of the action to start it off was a really good idea. And that this here passage is quite a whopper of a story. Also one thing that you could have done was do a little more research on the event of the attacks. Other than that it was very effective in getting the message across.
STEP4:Dealing with the French and Indian War it destroyed a lot of our farmland and put us in a lot of problems and really brought our colony down in trade. I have seen way too many parts of this war affecting my daily life and my family and it is a very tough situation to be in, especially with kids and a wife. I want to help as much as I can but my wife and kids need me.
The war is just affecting me too much to the point where I can’t let it affect me anymore. My family needs me and so does my brothers and sisters. Life is going to be rough, I can’t imagine what other colonies are going through.
So I found out some news about the French and Indian war like how it is getting bad and most people are starting to freak out. I found this news when I read the newspaper. I mean the war has not affected me that much because I live in Maryland. But it does cause a lot of conflict, and some trouble in my state. It causes a lot of trouble with my job because I am a farmer. And I don’t get that many crops because people are worried about the war so no crops being planted so none for selling. I wish we could just get along and not worry about this war because its not even that close to us. Sometimes I think I’m the only smart one around here. And this is coming from a 32 year old so that means most people are acting foolish. But other than the crops not much else is wrong,
I mean we are not getting attacked so thats a good thing. I’m just glad to be away from that war because it sounds pretty bad.
Hello it is me Reese Withersmith again. I have been noticing some of the men of plantations leaving for the war. That is outrageous! I would never do this and leave my family. They just need to leave these dumb Indians alone!
Word was going around town that four British men went missing while looking for Mohawk Indians. Many rumors have spread saying that they left the British army and joined the French to fight against us. If I ever saw those four men I would shoot them on the spot!
I am worried that those men will tell the French where our hiding places are, and I get worried when my children leave for school. I am afraid they could get attacked. I also heard that multiple British troops were on the hunt for those four men and if they ever caught them, they would be killed.
Recently I was looking in the newspaper and saw that the Native Americans are not helping us. Though we trade goods with them they are just trying to stay out of the whole British and French disagreement.
In North America conflict arose between France and Great Britain tension doesn’t affect my daily life. My colony is affected less than the colonists. Because both wanted control over the land. The tension between France and Great Britain is because they both wanted control of the Ohio Forts.I think that they should share the land.
So during this war we fought along side with the British and we even won. In the end we decided to side with the better of the two evils that are the British. Now that most of the white men are busy fighting not as much money comes through my shop. The white men are always writing about the war in their “newspapers”. They are constantly praising their “three-pronged“ attack strategy. How they win by lining up in rows, I do not know, but their vast numbers probably give them the upper hand.
I’m old and I can’t go in and fight, but my grandson Two Eagles Wing-bumping has just returned to the village. I am sorry that he has to go and fight this white man war but it is necessary if we want peace. The French think of us as equals and value our help. The English though, they lose more men then suck up their pride. So many of our brothers have lost their lives, and I’m beginning to wonder if it is worth it.
Hello everyone! It’s Abigail Smith again. The war ended, and the French and Indians beat British. I heard it was because the British formation made them an easy target. I heard all this stuff last night when there was a bunch of soldiers that I had to serve. I had to make a huge cake with all the ingredients we got. I even got a bite, it was awesome.
At the party there was a lot of crying with the ladies there. But it was good crying, they were all happy that their husbands were back. All the soldiers that did come back looked tired, had torn clothes, and very weak. Looks as though they fought very hard and they deserved to win. I wish I had more information to tell, but I don’t. Until next time.
Reading about this war that is going on up in the Ohio valley region has me scared if they’ll come down to the Georgia region. That is the last thing I would want to happen. The newspaper says that us people in Georgia are “Poorly Prepared”. I would agree that we are “Poorly Prepared”. The Georgia residents have sent up people to fight for us, including my own nephew and brother.
My brother, Luther, is about 10 years younger than me and is in war. He came over with General Braddock. Braddock came over with 1,400 of our own soldiers. Their mission is to try to drive the french forces out of the Ohio Valley Region. So far we lost our first stand, Fort Necessity. Hopefully we will win the next part of the war.
I hope the French can take over Georgia and win over the Ohio Valley. But I have to say that you guys have an advantage because of your terrible win over Quebec. May the best of luck be with you to win over our tremendous army.
This new war is starting to get on my nerves. My name is DaQuan Chong and my son is fighting for the French army as a new recruit. He talked about the French and Indian people coming and attacking him when they were trying to become allies with this so called Iroquois Confederacy. The Ohio Valley region is the area that these idiots are fighting over. My son, Jacob, came home with a bullet wound to the arm and told me that he overheard the commander of the Iroquois say something about playing dumb and not playing square with either side. It worried me to find out that the British are now coming over toward New York after winning over our best fort of Quebec.
The war they are calling "French and Indian war" confuses me. I thought the are working together. Anyways, the news paper said that the British are on the edge of victory but my son has assured me they won't! My other 11 children and 21 grandchildren are worried for Jacob. I Don't know if he is coming home or not from some forts around the Allegheny River surrounding the Ohio Territory. I am proud of my son and hope the outcome is good.
Good Luck French from,
I’ve read in the newspaper that there was a war going on. I didn’t even know this war was going on, until I read this article in the newspaper. The newspaper reads as follows “The French and British are fighting over Indian land in the Ohio Valley. The French are making allies with the Indians because they want to convert them to Catholicism. The Indians are getting mad because they’re fighting over land that isn’t up for taking, plus they are getting pushed farther and farther out of their homes with less land to live on.”
After the war, Britain was the clear victor and we gained land from the enemy. We kicked the natives out of their land and several years later the Revolutionary war was started. The war lasted for about 7 years, both sides were supported by their home country.
Edward Braddock went to go reclaim the ohio valley but were ambushed by the Indians, this was also the most famous battle. We got more supplies from the allied natives, and trade increased. General George Washington rallied his men for a retreat but were surrounded and they surrenderd.
I have a personal experience with the war because I help carry the cannons up and down the mountains. When I'm out there I herd the birds cherping and then a haler and my heart started to beat. I saw a British soldier impaled by a arrow. When I was working I herd a deep scream and saw my husband drop, I yelled and started to cry. It has affected me because to of my oldest boys (Justin, Cole) and her own husband. It has made it hard to feel safe and hard to work without worrying and wanting help.
