Join two Nation Builders to discuss war and conflict and the far-reaching and often surprising impact and implications they had on the 18th-century world. Bring your questions about wars such as the Seven Years' War, the Anglo-Cherokee War, Pontiac's War, Dunmore's War, and the American Revolutionary War. Ask about conflicts that were not restricted to open warfare. Conflicts occurred over religion, the institution of slavery, American Indian relations, intercolonial relations, political and legal disagreements, etc. All these things shaped 18th-century Williamsburg. Speak with the Nation Builders, and the historians who portray them, to give context to the ins and outs of their 18th-century world.
