Hey should this be its title now, or The French and Indian War. I think thats what it is really called.--Will N. 10:47, 15 June 2007 (EDT)

I've always heard of it referred to as the French and Indian War, which is why I made that stub. I didn't even know this article existed. --Colest 13:03, 15 June 2007 (EDT)
Two points, in priority order:
  1. There should be one article, rather than two. Either the singular form redirects to the plural form, or the other way around.
  2. We could dig into the matter a bit and find out which form is used more often by historians.
I think the first point is much more important than the second. Would one of you please do the merge? --Ed Poor Talk 08:31, 3 July 2007 (EDT)

Merging

I know you asked to have them merged into one Ed, but after looking at it further I don't believe we should head in that direction.

The term French and Indian Wars refers to 4 separate wars fought in the New World - King William's War, Queen Anne's War, King George's War, and the French and Indian War (Seven Year's War).[1] The most common one referred to in American History is the last war, as it solidified British dominance in America.

I would suggest as a solution letting French and Indian War stand on it's own, while modifying this article deal briefly with the overall theme of the French and Indian Wars with links to all four conflicts. --Colest 10:35, 3 July 2007 (EDT)
