Seven Years' War - French and Indian War:
    The French and Indian War (1754–1763) was the North American chapter of the Seven Years' War. The name refers to the two main enemies of the British: the royal French forces and the various American Indian forces allied with them. The conflict between France and Great Britain, resulted in the British conquest of all of New France east of the Mississippi River, as well as Spanish Florida. France's colonial presence in North America was reduced to the tiny islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon in the Gulf of St. Lawrence..

BOOK - Through So Many Dangers: The Memoirs and Adventures of Robert Kirk, Late of the Royal Highland Regiment [British Army]
Edited by Ian M. McCulloch & Timothy J. Todish
Introduction: Stephen Brumwell; Artwork: Robert Griffing
Published by Robins Brass Studio, Montreal, 2004
Robert Kirk (aka Kirkwood) served with the 42nd and 77th Highland Regiments during the Seven Years War of the 1750s and Pontiac’s Rebellion. From Niagara Falls to Newfoundland, from the Carolinas to the Mississippi, he covered some 5000 miles by foot, canoe, whaleboat and transport ship. By the time he returned home after ten years of “service truly critical,” our roguish hero had been captured and adopted by the Shawnee Indians. He became an accomplished marksman, hunter and tracker, proficient in the use of canoes, snowshoes and tumplines. Robert Kirk's memoirs, reprinted here for the first time since 1775, bring his exciting story to life. A riveting read for those who are interested in the period.
