Sir Henry Clinton's Opinion on the French and Indian War
(This is a fictional account, since no sources of info on the real opinion were found)
I am quite glad of the outcome of the Seven Years war. The French have lost Canada and all territories east of the Mississippi. I do think that the drafting civilians and allowing troops to take supplies from them at will is a little harsh, but it did boost munitions stock.
However, the crown is in high debt from the cost of the war. The taxes are going to be raised, that is the most probable outcome.
Prime Minister William Pitt’s tactics worked, but when an uprising nearly tore New York apart, he was forced to relent.
It is unfortunate about the death of Commander Edward Braddock in the attack of Fort Duquesne.
The Seven Years war was ultimately a victory for the British. (JJ)
