As the French and Indian War was near there became an urgency for cooperation among the colonies. Plan was to place the colonies under a more centralized government.

Drafted by Ben Franklin. Plan failed but would serve as a possible model for future attempts at a union. It is proposed that humble application be made for an act of Parliament of Great Britain, by virtue of which one general government may be formed in America, including all the said colonies, within

and under which government each colony may retain its present constitution, except in the particulars wherein a change may be directed by the said act, as hereafter follows. That the said general government be administered by a President-General, to be appointed and supported by the crown; and a Grand Council, to be chosen by the representatives of the people of the several

Colonies met in their respective assemblies. THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR The French and Indian War
