1763 - 1774 :  ROAD TO WAR

The British had committed much of their resources to winning the war in North America.  With the Treaty of 1763, the French gave much their land in North America to the British.  The rest of their land went to the Spanish.  How did Pontiac's Rebellion change the way the land gained from the French was to be used by the English colonists?  How did the British government plan to pay for the war?  The colonies rejected the Albany Plan for Union.  When and why did the colonies unite during this period?
