Yep, although as a consequence of one of them the Spanish gave the French their claims to what the French turned around and sold to us as the Louisiana Purchase. Which purchase was, in part, Napoleon's way getting back at the British for taking Canada, which was also one reason the French backed the Americans in the War of Independence. My head hurts.
Both sides and their native allies went at the Spanish settlements and their native allies in Queen Anne's War. Those warring native tribes that considered the white settlers also to be warring tribes were absolutely correct about it.
The French support for us was a classic case of the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
