Queen Anne's War (1702–1713), as the North American theater of the War of the Spanish Succession was known in the English colonies, was the second in a series of French and Indian Wars fought between France and England (later Great Britain)[1] in North America for control of the continent. The conflict was part of the War of the Spanish Succession, which was primarily fought in Europe. In addition to the two main combatants, the war also involved numerous American Indian tribes allied with each nation, and Spain, which was allied with France.

The war was fought on three fronts.

The southern war, although it did not result in significant territorial changes, had the effect of nearly wiping out the Indian population of Spanish Florida, including parts of present-day southern Georgia, and destroying Spain's network of missions in the area. The war between New France and New England was dominated by French and Indian raids against targets in Massachusetts (including present-day Maine); repeated English attacks resulted in the taking of Port Royal in 1710. In Newfoundland the war consisted of economic raids against the other side's settlements. The French successfully captured St. John's in 1709, but the British quickly reoccupied it after the French abandoned it.
