Queen Anne's War
By Sharon Fabian

1     The world is getting smaller. That's what people say when they are talking about today's speedy communication or transportation. The Internet makes it possible to communicate instantly with someone on the other side of the world. Jet plane travel makes it possible to be there in a matter of hours.
2     The idea that the world is getting smaller isn't a new one, however. For example, back in 1702, people may have been saying the same thing. In 1702, a conflict began over the choice of a new king for Spain. Soon the conflict spread all over Europe, and almost at once, the new Queen of England was involved in the conflict too. But, it didn't stop there. In no time, the conflict had spread across the Atlantic and was being played out in battles across North America.
3     In Europe, the conflict was called the War of Spanish Succession. In America, it was called Queen Anne's War.
4     How could a conflict spread so fast back in 1702? What made it seem like the world was getting smaller, even in colonial times?
