The French and Indian war has also been called the "Great War for Empire". Explain why this may be an appropriate name for this war.
The French and British had been fighting for years.
How do you think the "Great War for Empire" applies to what we call the French and Indian War?
I'll be glad to critique your answer.

The "Empire" was based in France and Britain, in Europe.
