Why the 13 Colonies got involved in the French and Indian war.

The 13 Colonies got involved because the Virginia governor told 21 year old George Washington to go to the fort that the British claimed the Virginia colony owned. The French refused to leave so Washington and 150 other British soldiers attacked the French scouting party and killed ten soldiers, according to the "water town k12 website". So technically the 13 colonies started these battles.
