The Treaty of Paris of 1763 ended the Seven Years War worldwide and the French and Indian War in North America. I focus on the effects of the treaty in North America. Basically, this war was a British victory over France. As a result of the treaty, there were two major shifts in land ownership in North America. France gave its land east of the Mississippi River, except for New Orleans, to Great Britain. Additionally, Spain, who had helped France in the war, gave Florida to Great Britain. France also gave its land west of the Mississippi River as well as New Orleans to Spain. Thus, France completely gave up its land holdings in North America. As a result of this treaty, the future history of North America was significantly impacted.
