Lego Challenge: The French and Indian War

Here is the boys' rendition of various elements of the French and Indian War.  Depicted is the British march toward Fort Duquesne, I think.  Fighting in the colonies was much different than fighting in Europe.  Do you see the French and Indians hiding behind trees? And do you see Darth Vader as one of the Indians?

And did you know that one of the reasons George Washington resigned from the British army was that he didn't receive the same pay the British officers received because he was a colonist?  He was also not allowed to advance in rank the same way as British officers, either... Interesting, huh?
