The French and Indian War (1754-1763) known in Europe as the Seven Years War was fought by not only the French and Indians but also included English, Irish and Scots, colonials with Indians on both sides. It was a dangerous time to carry on a family life as there were about 3,000 settles living in the Upper Delaware Valley around 1754. Colonists like the King family became part of the local militias to defend their homes. Image courtesy of Fae at Wikimedia Commons.
