Similarly one may ask, what caused the Pontiac's War?

Pontiac's War (also known as Pontiac's Conspiracy or Pontiac's Rebellion ) was launched in 1763 by a loose confederation of American Indian tribes, primarily from the Great Lakes region, the Illinois Country, and Ohio Country who were dissatisfied with British policies in the Great Lakes region following the French and.

Beside above, how did the British stop Pontiac's attacks? On July 31, a British relief expedition attacked Pontiac's camp but suffered heavy losses and were repelled in the Battle of Bloody Run. Failing to persuade tribes in the West to join his rebellion, and lacking the hoped-for support from the French, Pontiac finally signed a treaty with the British in 1766.

Why did the French and Indian War start?

Both sides wanted the valley so they could expand their settlements into the area. This was hardly the first time the French and English had grappled.
