The French and Indian War
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     In 1754, George Washington was a young Virginian, and the United States was not yet a country. In that year, Washington was sent west by the governor of Virginia to take care of a problem there.
 
2     The problem was located in the Ohio Valley, the area between the Appalachian Mountains and the Mississippi River. English settlers from Virginia, who were beginning to think about occupying more land, had formed the Ohio Company and made plans to expand westward. At the same time, the French were also expanding into the Ohio Valley area. Native Americans had occupied the area all along. The problem was that all three groups had claims to the same land.
 
3     George Washington, a 22 year-old major in the Virginia militia, had a mission. His mission was to tell the French to go away.
 
4     The French settlers didn't go away. They built a fort, Fort Duquesne.
