Queen Anne's War

1702-1713. The second of four French and Indian wars, this was the War of Spanish Succession in Europe. The French and their Abenaki allies interrupted commerce on the Maine coast, attacked the fort at Casco and the fort at Winter Harbor on the Saco. The English took the fort at Port Royal, renaming it Annapolis Royal. At the war's end, the French turned over Newfoundland and Acadia, the southwestern part of Nova Scotia, to the British. Warfare on the Maine coast continued with Lovewell's War.
