F. Just eleven years later in 1632, Acadia was given back to the French, but England continued it attacks. The main French colonies along the St. Lawrence did little to help the struggling Acadians. The Acadians were often trapped in the middle of the fighting between the French along the St. Lawrence and the English settlers in the New England colonies. The Acadians just wanted peace for their people.

The French built a series of different forts from Lake Ontario, all the way to the Ohio River valley. This was to protect the land they claimed from the British. After they did this, the British began to build a fort; but before it was finished, the French seized it, and claimed it for their own. This fort was called Fort Duquesne.

Before 1760, a Canadian society was developing a replica of the western world by building on the ideas of agriculture and commerce. The agriculture settlement in New France was organized by the use of the seigneurial system. The seigneurial system in Europe created a complete framework for hierarchy and the economic relationship between landlords and tenants. But in Canada, it wasn’t all that successful as the system was mainly used for organizing settlement and to work for the lands. In the past, early Canada was characterized as a rural, agriculture society. This prevented the recognition of small industries under the French regime. But nonetheless, most members of the colony engaged in some sort of entrepreneurship. The Conquest was indeed

After Leaving Puerto Rico in early March 1513, he sailed northwest to eventually find land that he thought was an island. This island had actually been the discovery of Florida and then he landed in the vicinity of Saint Augustine. Well after numerous deaths occurred King Philip II decided that colonizing Florida was not worth it, therefore, the explorations ended. Thus, the French swooped in and wanted to make Florida theirs, a man named Jean Ribault led the expedition to Florida. The French settled on St. Johns River and built Fort Caroline. The French had traded with the Saturiba tribe for food. When King Philip II found out about Ribault landing in Florida, he sent Pedro Menendez de Aviles, to get rid of the French and to settle there. Menendez ported at Saint Augustine on August 28, 1565, and on September 6, 1565, the life of the Indians of Seloy, never was the
When Cartier returned, the King was happy of the things he had seen. So King Francis sent him back with 3 ships and 110 men. Cartier captured 2 Native people of Canada and used them as guides in his next journey to Quebec. He also put together a base. In september he sailed
Soon after arriving home, they planned for yet another expedition. They were on their way about a year later. He left May 19 with 110 men on three ships with, as promised, the Chief’s sons that he brought home with them. Cartier continued up to what he thought was the Northwest passage to the east, using the St. Lawrence river. Cartier found Hochelaga, but couldn’t go any further due to the condition of the waters. Sadly, Cartier didn’t make it back to France before winter hit. They stayed with the people of Hochelaga for the winter, but soon scurvy broke out. At first it was just the Iroquois people, but soon effected the European explorers. Cartier left Canada to go back to France and took the chief with them, so that he could tell the king about what their is to be
