The Peace of Paris between Britain, France and Spain ends the Seven Years' War (called in America the French and Indian War), the last of the series of dynastic wars. By its terms Britain secures Canada, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, St. Vincent, Tobago, Dominica, Grenada, Senegal and Minorca from France, and Florida from Spain; France regains Martinique, Guadaloupe, St. Lucia and Goree and is guaranteed fishing rights off Newfoundland; the French settlements in India are restored, but no fortifications are to be built there; Spain acquires Louisiana from France, exchanges Florida for Havana and recovers Manila and the Philippines.
