Pre-colonial history treats the French/Indian war as being something that happened, but of little significance. It was a critical war in our nation’s founding - without it, George Washington wouldn’t have had the experience to lead our militias, and our militias would have been dreadfully unprepared to meet anyone on the field of battle.

You mean the pre-colonial history taught to high-schoolers treats the French/Indian war as being something that happened, but of little significance?
