Using the ancestors app I found that my great grandmother was mostly Italian and lived there for a few years until she moved to America. I also discovered that my grandfather was drafted in 1953 and sent the Germany to fight in the Korean War, as it was coming to an end.
My fathers side of the family is the side I really want to find more stuff about.

The French Indian War lasted from1754-1763 and consisted of the French , British, and Native American allies. Territorial expansion and militarization sparked cause togo the war. 9 years later, after the war, the English got land in the west but drew back after Indian attacks. Soon after, the Indians then attacked a British fort and the proclamation of 1763 came about. This proclamation then stated that the colonist were not allowed in the Appalachian mountains.
The French and Indian war is just another war

Last week we learned about the Europeans and their want for expansion and exploration. In the 1400's the Europe was controlled by the Roman Catholic Church. The church had authority over politics and kept the hold on religion; until reformation and the renaissance era sparked new ideas and a push for religious freedom. The separation  between Protestant and Catholics divided the people in half and caused Europe to have to rebuild there nation. Economical and political recuperation made the desire for exploration even more prominate.  
 I'm almost positive that if new age ideas didn't  pushed the boundaries for religion, Europe would've taken even longer to expand. But they're greedy and authoritative so it's an inevitability they will take advantage of what they will discover.
